Yay! I’m so thrilled to read that the dreamy Nigel Barker, photographer/judge from America’s Next Top Model, has an eco-heart and wants to protect baby seals! I’d faint if I saw the adorable big dark eyes of Nigel AND a baby seal at the same time. He has taken over for Sir Paul McCartney as the Spokesperson for the Humane Society’s “Protect Seals” campaign. He’s using his photography skills, celebrity status, and passion for the environment to help end commercial seal slaughters in Canada. Nigel has a son and another on the way; this responsibility as a father drives him in this work, “I want my son to grow up in a world where we respect the planet, and the animals…We just want to educate children on how amazing the planet can be, and is.”
He has an exhibit of photos and a documentary he took from his trip to Canada – “A Sealed Fate?”, which is on display in New York City July 25-27 and will head to other cities across the U.S. later this summer. The Event is free and open to the public.
