Tell the Canadian government to protect baby seals!
In recent years, climate change has caused the lowest sea ice formations in recorded history off of Canada’s East Coast. For the seals, this is a disaster. Mother seals are giving birth on small, fragile ice floes that melt long before their babies are strong enough to survive in the water. Government scientists have measured mass seal pup mortality as a result.
Unbelievably, despite the unprecedented sea ice deterioration—and the ongoing pandemic—the Canadian government is allowing commercial sealers to slaughter the surviving baby seals. These poor pups will be shot at and clubbed near open water, and many wounded animals will escape and die slowly. Others will be impaled on metal hooks — some likely while still conscious — and dragged onto bloody boat decks and beaten to death.
Baby seals need your voice to urge the Canadian government to end the commercial seal hunt once and for all and issue emergency directives to protect baby seals from the worst kinds of suffering this year.
