WELCOME TO Kids 4 Seals

What are Harp Seals?

Harp seals are beautiful and friendly marine mammals. In the spring, adult harp seals swim in the North Atlantic Ocean to Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. At the end of February, mother harp seals give birth to pups. Mothers usually have one pup per year.The pups are so white and fluffy that they almost look like stuffed animals.

Why would anyone hurt or kill a baby harp seal?

The harp seals have beautiful fur that keeps them warm. Some people think it is okay to kill animals and take their fur. We don't need to kill animals and take their fur to keep warm.The baby seals cannot swim yet or get away when they are being clubbed with a hakapik.This is very cruel and inhumane. The Canadian fishermen are doing the seal clubbing and killing during their off-season from fishing. The Canadian government lets this inhumane killing go on. That is why we are boycotting Canadian Seafood un till they stop this senseless killing. Help us to get the word out.
