Daily Walrus - Helping People Help Animals

Boycott Canadian Seafood to Protect Seals | March 11, 2008

According to the Humane Society, “The 2007 Canadian seal hunt left at least 215,378 seals dead — and almost all of them were babies as young as 12 days old.”  Each year, the media and animal rights activists bring up the barbaric clubbing of seals (click here for more info), and each year it continues.  This March, the HSUS is encouraging Americans to hit those responsible for this cruelty where it hurts – their wallets.  Join us in helping to end the slaughter by boycotting Canadian seafood.  Since the seal hunts are conducted by Canadian commercial anglers during the off-season, boycotting their main streams of income should send a message to those involved.  To learn more about the hunt, click here.  Click here to sign the pledge and to learn about other ways to protest this unusually cruel event.

  1. I find it odd that a vegan blog is talking about boycotting eating the flesh of the animals from one country, vs just avoiding the commodification of animals, full stop. o_O

  2. Thanks for the comment. While we would love for everyone to give up seafood (and animal products in general), vegans and non-vegans alike can still call their supermarket and ask that they specifically boycot Canadian seafood in an effort to stop this disgusting seal “hunt”.

About author

Hello - we are Jenny and Ryan, a couple living in Brooklyn, New York. We are both busy with school and work but try to take time to do something every day to make the world a better place for animals. Occasionally we may link to outside websites for additional resources, but we do not necessarily endorse all policies of these organizations. Despite the title of our blog, the focus is not only on walruses. So what's with the title? We named this blog after our cat, Wally, aka The Walrus. We are the proud parents of two cats (Wally and Tito) and one dog (Luigi).
