Five Ways to Help Seals RIGHT NOW!

Posted May 17, 2011 by Christina

Need a reason to help seals? How about 14?

Did you know that during Canada’s annual seal slaughter, sealers routinely hook live seals in the eye, cheek, or mouth to avoid damaging the fur and then drag the seals across the ice with a hakapik. Many of these young, gentle creatures may not even have eaten their first solid meal or taken their first swim before they are slaughtered for their fur.

There are so many easy ways to speak out against the Canadian seal slaughter, and we want to show you just how easy it is. Here are five things that you can do right now to help end this annual barbaric slaughter:

  1. Pass out leaflets to your friends while school is still in session. Send us a picture of you taken while you’re passing out our seal-slaughter leaflets to get 1,000 points.
  2. Share this infographic on Facebook or Twitter to get 500 points.
  3. Share our seal rap video on Facebook to get 500 points.
  4. Take pics with friends and this sign, and add the pics to Facebook to get 3,000 points.
  5. Tell Canada to end the seal slaughter, and get 150 points.

Once you complete all five missions, e-mail your pics and screenshots to StreetTeam@peta2.com to get up to 5,150 points!

    Killers!!!! Disgusting people who do this to these adorable
    seals are just plain CRAZY!!!!! You go in their habitant and invade on them, it just wrong!!!

    It is just not necessary. Leave them alone!!!!! Seals are just going about their lives, or trying to. they don’t bother us. They have a “RIGHT” to live just as we do.

    Look at that seal in the picture, (at top), It says it all.

    Write your congressman, white house, senators, mayors, and any one of your friends that want to but the hell out of these idiots that have their head between up their butts tnat don’t take the quality of life seriously. Hell they they don’t even take the soldiers lives seriously while the President is having tea and crumpets with the queen, the rest of the government is running around going whatdo we do now? How about letting animals be slaughtered not just here but in Canada too? Get busy guys and look outside the circle and though it may not be a big deal to you it is to us who love these and other animals and don’t forget this is an election year. Get some guts and reach outside of your circle and quit passing the buck and take a chance and help the seals. Do some good. Then pat your selves on the back ok?

    I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THIS DREADFUL CRUELTY IS ALLOWED BY THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT, THE KILLING OF SEALS MUST BE BANDED AND MADE A CRIMINAL OFFENSE RIGHT NOW. THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES FOR ALLOWING THIS BARBARIC AND HORRENDOUS CRUELTY TOWARDS DEFENSELESS SEALS – SHAME ON YOU CANADIAN GOVERNMENT, SHAME ON YOU.

    The seal plushie (and Kali) are absolutely adorable! I’ve already did 4 of the 5 (I can’t exactly do the school one since I am homeschooled) so I get to be entered to win it! My birthday is May 30th so winning would be a great belated birthday present.

    Great sadness about this. My prayer is their hearts will be convicted of this cruel perversion and that they will learn to slaughter without animal suffering, as God intended for them to be subjected and cared for under us but not to be subject to suffering and cruelty!

      I do it by hitting “Prnt Scrn” on my keyboard and then opening paint and hitting “Ctrl” + “v”. All you have to do next is save it as a JPG file. :)

I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites. My Celeb Hotties are: Joseph Gordon-Levitt *swoon*, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Krasinski & Josh Hutcherson (I have no idea why they all mostly start with “J” lol).

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "If you wait to tell someone you love them, it’s too late." -Paul McCartney "If you don’t shoot, you don’t score." "It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
