The satellite technology transmits regular signals from the bear’s collar allowing researchers to follow them remotely and download information about their movements and whereabouts via internet updates three times a week. The collar is programmed to record information about the animal’s location every 90 minutes and to automatically drop-off after a period of 18 months.
 
“The bears are in good condition after their hibernation in their self-made wintering den. They are being released in spring now when they have access to good forage in the wild.

Canada’s commercial seal hunt is the largest hunt for marine mammals in the world. Hunters are allowed to kill pups as soon as they begin to molt their white coats, which occurs when the animals are about two weeks old.
 
“In spite of the fact that the DFO has refused to issue observation permits for the opening day of the annual slaughter, I have no doubt that the world will be watching closely.” said Sheryl Fink, senior researcher and veteran seal hunt observer with IFAW.

The team observed and documented sealers on the ice in the Gulf of St. Lawrence hunting with hakapiks on the opening day of the hunt.
 
“We witnessed today a classic example of the cruelty associated with this hunt. We filmed as a sealer struck a seal with a hakapik before it slipped into the water. The sealer tried to pull the seal out by the hind flippers but it slipped underwater anyway,” said Cheryl Jacobson, hunt observer with IFAW.
