Get out your party decorations and streamers…we’re saving some seals!
Today is International Day of Action for Seals — a holiday that encourages individuals to take a stand against the brutal Canadian Seal Hunt. This tragic event is the largest commercial hunt of marine mammals on the planet and barbarously takes the lives of hundreds of thousands of baby seals each year.
In 2009, I had the opportunity to help celebrated photographer and America’s Next Top Model judge Nigel Barker promote his documentary, A Sealed Fate. In this thoughtful and inspiring film, Barker uncovers the truth behind this reckless hunt and the threat it not only poses to Canadian seal pups, but also to the sustainability of the environment.
Please join me and the millions of others around the world who are helping protect these precious animals by taking 5 minutes to check out the HSUS’s information page on the hunt and learn how you can take action.
Whether you consider yourself an animal advocate or not, I’m confident we all agree that no creature deserves to be subjected to this sort of prodigious cruelty. Happy International Day of Action for Seals!
