Boycott Canadian Seafood

 

 

 

 

 

The 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.
