U.K. Petition to Ban Seal Imports
Chris Gale, an active supporter of IFAW's efforts in the U.K. has created a petition on the petitions.pm.gov.uk site and has almost 1000 signers. Chris details his petition saying:
"Over the past five years, more than 1.25 million seals have been hunted in Canada’s annual commercial hunt – making it the largest marine mammal hunt in the world.
The global community has denounced Canada’s seal hunt and responded with seal trade bans. National bans currently exist in the USA, Mexico, Croatia,Italy and Belgium.
The UK government should follow suit and introduce a ban on seal products to protect these wonderful animals from a cruel and unnecessary trade."
