Tell Red Lobster: Stop Supporting the Canadian Seal Hunt

The Red Lobster restaurant chain is the world's largest purchaser of Canadian seafood. One of Red Lobster's seafood suppliers, the Barry Group, owns Atlantic Marine Products, a large seal processing company.

Commercial hunters kill 350,000 seals per year, and 97 percent of these seals are less than three months old. The seals are either shot or clubbed to death. 

Red Lobster could help end the commercial seal hunt if they chose to boycotting Canadian seafood, putting pressure on their seafood suppliers to re-think their practices.

Sign the petition asking Red Lobster President Kim A. Lopdrup not to buy or serve Canadian seafood until Canada stops the seal slaughter.

      I have been eating frequently at Red Lobster. I am going to stop eating there until I get notification that they stopped such purchases as harms the seals. To the owners of Red Lobster please, it's difficult, I know, but try to think beyond your pocketbook. And to my fellow consumers, join me in thinking beyond our tastebuds, and boycott RL until they comply with this necessary boycott. For The Earth-We Only Have One! Thanks
