Pamela Anderson has been an ambassador of PETA’s campaign against her native Canada’s seal hunt for years. She has sent a petition to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper with 500,000 signatures, urged China to ban seal product imports, and helped Brigitte Bardot speak out against the annual seal cull.
The actress and animal advocate recently took her love of seals to Germany in an attempt to meet with the country’s Minister of Economics, Philipp Rosler. According to the Times of India, Anderson went to Berlin on behalf of PETA along with information about the seal hunt. She was to ask Rosler to oppose efforts by World Trade Organization officials to resume trade of seal products in Germany.
Rosler was reportedly not there at the time, so Anderson left PETA’s campaign materials with his representatives.
Canada continues to unsuccessfully fight the European Union’s ban on seal products, and Russia’s recent ban was a big blow to the seal hunt. Anderson applauded Russia’s action against the hunt. According to Starpulse, she tweeted “WE WON!!! Russia Bans Canadian Seal Fur!!! thank you for all your support!!!” Her fellow Canadian Sarah McLachlan recently spoke out and asked Canada to buy out the fading seal industry.
