Write to Governments of Canada, Namibia, Turkey, Australia and Hatem Yavuz to end the Seal Slaughter.

Sample Letter:

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

i am deeply opposed to Canada´s and Namibia´s annual cruel, wasteful, and unsustainable commercial slaughter of seal pups.

Sseals are facing a new threat - global warming - which is resulting in dramatically reduced ice coverage in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and off Newfoundland.

Your government is on record stating it will take 'real action' on global warming. And yet you have ignored the one tangible action your government could take to combat the effects of global warming - dramatically
reducing the seal hunt quota.

Apart from these serious conservation concerns shared by many Canadians, the seal hunt targets baby animals, a practice that is unacceptable to the majority of Canadians. In the past two years, 98% of the seals killed have been
less than three months old. Severe cruelty has been witnessed and documented at
the hunt during the past 30 years and incidents of cruelty are not decreasing.

This hunt only continues to exist because it is propped up by a range of government subsidies and tax-payers money. More and more countries around the world are adopting legislation to ban the import of seal products.

Instead of investing in meaningful employment opportunities for Newfoundlanders, the federal government continues to fund and support a seasonal and wasteful seal hunt which draws national and international
criticism to a proud region of Canada trying to build a reputation for
high-tech research and first-class environmental tourism.


The world's cruellest slaughter of seals takes place every year in Namibia, and is due to start again on July 1st. Australian-based fur and skins company, Hatem Yavuz from Turkey, is directly implicated in this annual brutal slaughter. Hatem Yavuz is the last remaining buyer of these dead seal pup skins to make them into fur coats.
The market for Namibian Cape Fur Seal skins has collapsed over recent years due to lack of demand and import bans in the European Union, the United States, Mexico and South Africa because of the cruelty involved in the sealing methods. As of 2008, Australian-based Hatem Yavuz is the only one company left buying seal skins from Namibia.

Gucci , Prada sells them

Hatem Yavuz company founded in 1975 on his own behalf, leather, fur and wool trade is doing. The slogan is "Leather is our business," the company's head office in Australia. The company is also Turkey, Russia and South Africa have the facilities. The Group's committed Yavuz leather Gucci, Prada and Versace are used by such famous fashion houses.



I urge you to act immediately to end this unnecessary cruelty to seals and to restore Canada's and Namibia´s pride .

Thank you for taking the Time to read this Letter.
Sincerely,
