In just a few short weeks, Canadian fishermen will descend on the seals’ habitat to kill the babies for their fur. This comes despite habitat loss due to climate change. Rebecca Aldworth visits the harp seal nursery to witness this amazing place.

Each year, the Canadian government authorizes commercial fishermen to kill hundreds of thousands of seal pups off the East Coast of Canada. The HSUS Protect Seals campaign is part of an international effort to bring this cruel and needless hunt to an end. The campaign is focused on pressing Canada’s fishing industry and its government to end the commercial seal hunt.
Seal hunting is an off-season activity of a few thousand fishermen from Canada’s east coast. They make, on average, about 5% of their income from sealing, and the rest from commercial fisheries. Roughly two-thirds of Canadian seafood exports go to the United States each year. Canada’s sealers make much more money from exporting seafood to the U.S. than they do from killing seal pups
Through the boycott of Canadian seafood, The HSUS and its supporters are sending a clear message to Canada’s fishing industry. If the industry would like open access to our market, it needs to stop supporting and participating in the commercial seal hunt. To date, more than 750,000 individuals and over 5,500 grocery stores, restaurants, casinos, and seafood suppliers in the United States have joined the seafood boycott.
Mario Batali, Cat Cora, Kerry Simon, and hundreds of other chefs are joined by compassionate companies, including:
- Battleground Restaurant Group
- BI-LO Supermarkets
- Bon Appétit Management Company
- China Grill Management Group
- Fireman Hospitality Group
- The Forgeois Group
- Gotham City Restaurant Group
- Harris Teeter
- Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Cafés
- Legal Sea Foods
- Lowe’s Foods
- McGrath’s Fish House
- Patina Restaurant Group
- Ted Turner’s Ted’s Montana Grill
- The Venetian and Palazzo Resorts
- The Old Spaghetti Factory Restaurants
- Trader Joe’s
- Whole Foods
- WinCo Foods
All chefs and companies participating in the Protect Seals campaign have pledged to avoid some or all Canadian seafood until Canadian fishermen from Canada’s East Coast end—once and for all—the commercial seal hunt.

SAVE THE SEALS: May this video touch the hearts of those who are still not aware of the senseless and brutal killing of seals all over the world and convince them to raise their voices AGAINST this unforgivable and utterly atrocious practice of heartless humans!
