Ending Canada's Commercial Seal Hunt


Target
: Canadian Senators [click here]
Sponsored by: International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)

Thanks to a courageous Canadian Senator, there is now a Bill that would end this hunt, which is expected to take the lives of more than 250,000 baby seals this year alone.

Imagine a Canada in which there are no more baby seals hooked and dragged onto boats while still conscious. No more seals as young as three weeks old being skinned alive. No more needless slaughter of hundreds of thousands of seals each year.

Senator Mac Harb wants to fill the Senate with messages of support for his Bill. Help us collect over 250,000 signatures in the next few weeks - one message for every seal that will likely be killed in this year's slaughter. With the proposed seal product ban in the EU and IFAW's success in helping to secure Russia's ban on hunting harp seals less than a year old, the momentum to end Canada's commercial seal hunt has never been stronger. The prospect of making a lasting change to save the seals has never been so real, so please sign the petition today!
