Waste and cruelty are endemic at the commercial seal hunt

 

I get asked a lot about why IFAW travels to the ice each year to document the commercial seal hunt.

IFAW Animal Action Young Campaigner Award winner Olivia Todd & her brother Jake

 

As National Youth Week draws to a close I’d like to dedicate this post to all the fabulous young people around Australia who care about animals and their world.

Children love animals. They love watching them, patting them, talking to them, feeding them, almost everything about them.

Last year IFAW was thrilled to be able to recognise the achievements of 11 award winners during the awards ceremony at the House of Lords, hosted by Baroness Gale and Queen legend and animal welfare campaigner Brian May.
