It’s our moral obligation to help end this barbaric and unnecessary slaughters. We have no right to kill them. We have to do something!
Please sign the petitions, it only takes a minute, and it’s really important

WE WILL NEVER STOP FIGHTING FOR YOU!
Seal hunting is incredibly important dietarily, culturally, and economically to Inuit and First Nations peoples. That fact has to be a consideration in these conversations because any ban of it that targets these peoples would, best case scenario, force their relocation or, worst case, their deaths. IFAW does seemingly take those considerations somewhat into its campaigning, but the petition on this post is a load of emotionally manipulative garbage.
Canadian regulations are fairly humane and keep seal populations steady even with the commercial industry. They aren’t endangered or at risk. And that adorable top photo is of a whitecoat. It’s been illegal to hunt them at that age since the 1980s. Also, despite public perceptions, most hunters use rifles, but the clubs, hakapiks, are actually just as if not more effective at humanely killing. If you oppose this practice for real, valid reasons beyond “but look how cute they are!” then you need to have the integrity to know what you’re talking about and represent it accurately.
