Photographer Nigel Barker Chats Haiti, Seals And More With The Discerning Brute
We’re big Nigel Barker fans around here! From his humanitarianism work around the world to his steadfast dedication to end the seal hunt in Canada, Nigel proudly raises his voice for those who lack a voice of their own.
Barker recently shared his thoughts on the situation in Haiti, the seal hunt in Canada and going green in an exclusive interview with our pal Joshua Katcher on TheDiscerningBrute.com.
In the piece, Nigel said:
“Look, instead of hunting these animals and treating them like worthless skins and killing them in such a brutal manner where you skin them alive 45 percent of the time — instead how about putting them on your flag? How about celebrating these animals? How about being proud of it, using it as a sign of patriotism and sort of cherishing your wildlife as oppose to mindlessly and senselessly killing it? ”
Can I get an amen?

Incidentally, Nigel and I will both be speaking at this year’s Go Green Expo in New York City. On April 18th, Nigel will be presenting his documentary, A Sealed Fate, and on the 19th I’ll be speaking on a panel about Green Leadership. To get your tickets for the event, visit GoGreenExpo.com!
