Sealers aren't the only thing killing baby seals

Protect SealsMarch 29, 2011
Dear Anne,

Every year, I document Canada's commercial slaughter of baby harp seals to expose the largest slaughter of marine mammals in the world.

But this year we're witnessing a disaster of a different kind -- climate change is causing the ice to melt rapidly, and hundreds of thousands of baby seals are drowning. Take immediate action to save seals»

Harp seals need sea ice to give birth to and nurse their young. Without it, pups can’t survive, and in some places not a single baby seal is left.

And here’s what’s worse: The Canadian government is STILL allowing the sealers to slaughter what few surviving pups they can find. On Friday, it announced that it will allow the killing of 468,200 harp, hooded, and grey seals -- a total increase of 80,000 seals from 2010.

Please urge Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to call off the slaughter»

This year's quota is the highest since the Canadian government set rules on how many seals could be killed, on par with kill levels of the 1950s and 60s when sealers reduced the harp seal population by as much as two-thirds.

The overwhelming majority of Canadians want the seal slaughter to end. The government should protect these defenseless animals and stop using tax dollars to prop up a dying industry.

Tell Canada to call off the commercial slaughter and spare the seal survivors»

Thank you so much for joining our call to save lives.
