End the commercial seal slaughter in Canada
Right now, mother harp seals are nursing their young pups on sea ice off Canada’s East Coast. But the peace on the ice is about to be shattered. Climate change is quickly destroying the seals’ habitat, melting the sea ice before the pups are strong enough to survive in open water.
Then, in just weeks, the seal pups who survive will be subjected to the largest slaughter of marine mammals on earth, in which they will be clubbed and shot for their fur, despite seal products being banned in many markets.
No one can reverse the impacts of climate change in the immediate term, but a responsible government can and should take urgent action to stop the commercial seal hunt.
