Stop the Seal Massacre
- 5 days ago - ifaw.org
Six species of seals inhabit Canadian waters; bearded seals, grey seals, harbour seals, hooded seals, ringed seals, and the subject species of this website, of course, harp seals.
The two types of seals slaughtered year after year in the commercial seal 'hunt' of Canada are the harp seal and the hooded seal. By far, the harp seal is the principal species hunted...
The harp seal population is found in three separate populations, each of which uses a specific breeding site. The western North Atlantic stock, which is the largest, is located off eastern Canada. This population is further divided into two separate herds based on the breeding location. The Front herd breeds off the coast of Labrador and Newfoundland, and the Gulf herd breeds near the Magdalen Islands in the middle of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. A second stock breeds on the "West Ice" off eastern Greenland. A third stock breeds on the "East Ice" in the White Sea, which is off the coast of Russia. Breeding occurs between mid-February and April, and varies somewhat for each stock.
Thousands of harp seals in the Northwest Atlantic subpopulation group migrate in groups each year from waters around Baffin Island (located in the territory of Nunavut) to their birthing grounds in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and to waters around Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada. They leave the Arctic waters in the fall and reach their birthing grounds from December to February, where they disperse and feed intensively. After whelping, as the ice recedes, the harp seals migrate back to the Arctic.
Born in the spring on ice packs, harp seal pups go through 6 life stages:
Yellowjacket: Newborn pups with white fur tinted yellow from placental fluid are born weighing about 24 lbs. and measuring almost 3 feet long.
Whitecoat: After a few days, the yellowish tint disappears, and the pups have a fluffy white fur coat. They nurse on their mothers high-fat milk (containing about 45% fat) and triple their weight to over 75 lbs. in about 12 days.
Ragged/Raggedy Jacket: After the pups are weaned at about 2 weeks of age, they start to moult in patches, leaving a dense silver-grey fur with black spots.
Beater: After about 18 days, the harp seal's white coat is completely moulted. They start to learn how to swim by beating the water with their front flippers, leading to the name 'beaters'.
Bedlamer: Immature seals were given this name in the 15th or 16th century by the Basque and Breton settlers in the Strait of Belle Isle. The term comes from the French 'Betes de la mer' (Animals of the Sea).
Adult: Males reach maturity at about 7-8 years of age. Females reach maturity at about 4-6 years of age.

Put Your Keyboard to Work for the Seals ! PLEASE SIGN ! !
- 8 hours ago - harpseals.org
Petitions Signed. Thanks Nyack
I signed all the petitions yet the one that pledges me to boycott Canadian sea food feels wrong since I boycott all food from animals. Sea food is one of most critical types of food boycott due to the severity of commercial over fishing.
If petitions dont feel right to you John, please dont feel obligated to sign them. I hear what you are saying, and scientists are predicting our oceans may be empty by 2050. But? its one of those things... like global warming...that people somehow go into denial about, believing that somehow, everything is one, big endless resource.
Oceans ARE severely depleted and overfished- it a damn shame the kill seals because they believe its the seals fault for eating too many fish! Seals are doing what they have ALWAYS done. What is different is mankinds' fishing methods.
Info noted, petitions signed and letters sent CONGRATS JOHN ) ) )
Strongly agree Nyack with everything you say. I had put my Keyboard to Work for the Seals! Thanks for posting.
