I would also like to share the letter I received from IFAW regarding the Annual Seal Slaughter here in Canada...

Dear Lizzy, 

The memory of "the waving seal" still haunts me.

The sun was brilliant that early spring day. We were documenting the hunt - filming from a helicopter - as a sealing vessel bore down on a group of seals.

The sealers began shooting the seals, and then beating them, and hooking them to drag them to their boat so they could skin them.

The seals were stacked in the boat in a bloody, lifeless pile. That's when I saw the waving seal.

At first I thought he was dead too. He lay on his back on the bottom of the boat, cut open by a knife from his throat to his belly, his eyes to the sky - like he was looking straight at us.

Then he waved his flipper. Just once at first, then over and over. It was as if he was saying to me "please help me, please help me."

I watched in anguish as the boat motored on ... and still the seal's flipper waved. The sealers kept shooting and clubbing seals and throwing them in the boat ... and still his flipper waved. Then finally, mercifully, the waving stopped.

The fight to end this cruel hunt needs YOU.

Tens of thousands of seals will be slaughtered in this year's hunt. That's a staggering number of animals.

In fact, the number is almost overwhelming to me. But then I think about the waving seal. And I remember that every seal, every single one, is a living and breathing being - capable of fear, of suffering in agonizing pain, and of caring so dearly for their young as they nurse them on the ice.

You've taken action for animals in need. Can you help us stop this cruel seal hunt?

I can tell you how it's an economic loser - over 30 years of government subsidies, resulting in the waste of tens of millions of taxpayers' dollars, has failed to create a viable sealing industry.

And I can tell you how it is impossible to make the seal hunt humane. Shooting seals from a moving boat, then hooking them in the face, while still alive and conscious - this is what we've documented and passed on as proof of the hunt's inherent cruelty.

And I can tell you how you have enabled us to make such progress in closing down markets for seal products. You've helped achieve bans in Russia and throughout the EU, and your support is now helping us engage in the ongoing legal challenge before the World Trade Organization to uphold that EU ban and keep this market closed for good.

But today I mainly wanted to tell you about the waving seal.

Waving to me in anguish. Waving in hopes of mercy. Waving for us to help.

Please help by making a donation today. We CAN win this fight to save innocent seals. But we need you.
