IFAW urges Chinese consumers to reject cruelty-tainted seal products

Publication Date: 
Mié, 01/12/2011
Imagen: 

IFAW asserts that while this is a political agreement between China and Canada, Chinese consumers will be the ones to decide the fate of seal products. Once Chinese consumers are made aware of the realities of Canada’s commercial seal hunt, IFAW believes that they will reject the products, thereby making the deal irrelevant.

The Shark Conservation Act, introduced by Sen.
