Call To Action: Make The Canadian Government Protect Baby Seals


A petition has been launched to urge the Canadian government to protect baby seals.

Sadly for seals in Canada, 2021 recorded the smallest ice formation ever. Seal mothers rely on these floating ice sanctuaries to have their babies and for the pups to survive until they are strong enough to deal with the open ocean. Due to the low ice, which will melt before the pups are strong enough, scientists expect pup mortality to be devastating this season.

The Canadian government doesn’t seem to be overflowing with the milk of human kindness this season. It’s going to allow baby seals to be hit with a double whammy: If they’re lucky enough to survive the ice melt, they definitely will not survive the sealers, which will shoot them and brutally finish them off with clubs. Not to mention those who will be speared with metal hooks. Or even worse, the wounded and bloodied babies who escape only to die an agonizingly slow death from their wounds.

A petition has been launched to give these babies a voice and urge the Canadian government to stop this inhuman and cruel slaughter.

You can sign the petition here.

If you can stomach the footage, you can see for yourself what the Canadian government is willing to let happen in the video below.
