Help Stop The Seal Hunt!

Help Stop The Seal Hunt!

    1. Petition by

      The Humane Society of The United States

April 9, 2010 Yesterday, we saw the first baby seals killed off Canada's east coast.

If you give now, your donation will be tripled by the Giant Steps Foundation and other generous donors.

Our donors are willing to turn every dollar you donate into three because they know we can win the battle to save the seals.

This support makes it possible for the ProtectSeals team to travel to the remote east coast of Canada -- to photograph, videotape, and report on the cruelty that the sealing industry doesn't want the world to see.

We've made a real impact on the sealing industry: We've convinced individual nations and even the entire European Union to pass bans on the trade of all seal products. Our Canadian seafood boycott has the fishermen who kill seals for a few extra dollars thinking twice. We have never been closer to ending this hunt. Please help us.

Thank you for standing with us here in spirit, and thank you again for your generous support.

These seal pups had somehow managed to survive having their ice habitat literally melt out from under them. And still the Canadian government allowed sealers to slaughter them for their fur with clubs and guns. It is even allowing sealers to kill 50,000 more than last year -- 388,200.

      We have such rich diversity of animal life on this planet.  Every animal has a role to play in the world ecosystem.  It is OUR responsibility, being the most highly evolved of all animals to, preserve this diversity for ourselves and the future generations. Slaughtering seals and other animals indiscriminately is not a sustainable practice. Please stop before it is too late.

      Why? Because they are killed for their fur. This is disgusting and inhumane how they are killed as well.  We as human beings have become such an ugly species to destroy all of God's creatures purely for our selfish and evil intentions. It saddens me, as I am becoming ashamed of our species. Sincerely, Suzanne Sanchez

      Canada treats its forests well, so I know that there is an understanding of ecological friendliness among some Canadians, so why hunt seals? Depleting the seal population has only been shown to hurt the population of the local fish, hurting the Canadian fishing industry as well. Add to that the boycott of Canadian seafood, and you should realize that the hunt is a bad move morally AND economically. Please stop the hunt.
