End Canada’s commercial seal hunt

It’s time for Canada’s commercial seal hunt to end.

Every spring, seal pups between 3 weeks and 3 months of age are brutally shot, clubbed and skinned. Their carcasses are left to rot on the ice or dumped into the ocean.

Seals are dying needlessly for an industry that wouldn’t exist but for government subsidies. Most of the world no longer needs or wants seals products. Still the killing continues.

Canada’s new Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has a historic opportunity to end the commercial seal hunt once and for all.

Please take action today to save seals.

Tell Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Hunter Tootoo to develop a plan to buy out commercial sealing licenses, and end the commercial seal hunt now.
