Canadian commercial seal hunt is the largest
marine mammal slaughter in the world.This year over 300,000
seals - mostly pups less than 2 months old - were bludgeoned, shot,
and skinned to feed the whims and greed of
the fur fashion
and exotic leather industries, and their customers. Canada's
commercial seal hunt is about money.The goal of the Canadian
Seafood Boycott is to take all the profit out of sealing, and for
every year the seal hunt continues to directly cost those
who kill the seals 50 to 100 times more than what they earn from
the commercial seal hunt. Kill the profits, and the Canadian
government, the sealing industry, and the fishing industry will
kill the hunt.
ECOTERRA Intl. and
ECOPmarine have pledged their support of the Canadian Seafood
Boycott. Members as well as volunteers, associates, staff, donors
and supporters of ECOTERRA with their professional work, their
personal involvement or by means of their contributions, commit
themselves towards the preservation, active protection and sound
development of the natural foundations of life forming the base
for all people. ECOP- marine is the marine protection unit of ECOP
and a group of ECOTERRA Intl. ECOP. It is a fully independent
group, which demands better protection for the oceans of our earth
as well as for its inhabitants.
