Help Battle Seal Slaughterers in World of Warcraft!

The fight against the Canadian seal slaughter has gone digital!

That’s right, gamers, get ready: This Saturday, World of Warcraft (WoW) players will have the opportunity to combat a team of four Horde seal killers. We need your help to stop them from bashing in the heads of any more seals!

Thrall refused to ban the slaughter of seals, despite multiple requests from the Alliance to do so, because Orgrimmar stands to make a large profit from the fur.

Activists from across the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor are banding together to put a stop to the atrocious seal slaughter. Anyone who slaughters baby seals for their fur must surely be in service to the evil Lich King.

Here’s what you need to know in order to battle:

  • You must be in the WhisperWind realm in order to fight. Visit WorldofWarcraft.com if you need information about how to switch into this realm.
  • Once in the WhisperWind realm, go to Northrend, where you will find a zone called Howling Fjord, where the baby seals live on glaciers and boats float in the fjords. This will be the battleground to stop the slaughter. (Note: You must be at least a Level 70 player in order to enter Howling Fjord.)
  • The battle will take place on Saturday, April 11, at 1 p.m. EST.

Make sure to check out videos about the upcoming battle here, and use our Facebook event to get all your friends to join you in the fight. Be sure to check back for the battle coordinates.

Think you can stop the seal killers?

UPDATE: The battle will be taking place at coordinates 79, 73 on the southeastern coast of Howling Fjord, due south of the Explorers League Outpost.



(Did all this WoW talk go right over your head? Don’t be embarrassed—maybe you should just sit this round out and stick to helping seals on Facebook!)

    So, did you get flagged PVP and then slaughtered by the non-PETA people who showed up? I wish you had done this on the server I play on.
    The laughing would have never stopped.

    Epic lol. Of course PeTA wouldn’t be trying to help real baby seals and instead wants to stop killing fake seals in a computer game. Peace out.

    Stupid that it’s the Horde killing them. It should be the prissy human Alliance that are killing them for their fur =P

    How does horde killing seals have anything to do with the Lich King?

    It`s a little weird, i would rather help seals than kill seals on WoW xD But okeey i would love to help but i don`t have WoW and it takes long till your lvl 70. xD
    My boyfriend plays WoW and he`s i believe lvl 62. or higher… the last time i looked he was 62 xD
    I wanted to ask him but he`s no lvl 70. =(

    By the way…you don’t have to be level 70 to get there. Have a mage port you to Dalaran and have a high level friend run you to the zone. You can be level 1.

    LOL! I love it!
    I do have a WoW account and I will be there. The only problem I forsee is that Horde is going to want to join in and they don’t like being called evil.
    May I suggest you have the developers make some seal clubbing Alliance NPC’s? (non player characters) After all – humans are Alliance and according to the game lore, they are the most evil characters in the game. The peace loving Tauren are Horde and they are very protective of animals.
    While you are in game, go check out the D.E.H.T.A. (druids for the ethical and humane treatment of animals) camp in Borean Tundra. Do the quests: release animals from traps and save baby elephants and get a DEHTA shirt for your character! Very cool!
    See ya there! :)

    “Is this serious? Really? What is wrong with people?
    I can understand protesting the clubbing of real seals… but that’s the thing… these seals aren’t real. It’s a game, the seals are nothing but data! No animals are going to be harmed… at all. I hope a GM appears durring this protest and bans everyone involved.”
    And of course you don’t understand the point of attracting attention to the issue lol. Everyone understands that nothing in WoW is REAL. It’s merely a get together to spread the concern in a wildly played mmo.
    As for the idea, i think its awesome, sorry I would not be joining as I play on a different server and there is no way I would have a lvl 70 in time.

    Is it really beneficial to save digital entities on a massive online role playing game? Code is infinite – these seals aren’t real or represent anything of tangible value. Why not spend the effort protecting real seals?
    It is for these reasons why I can’t retract my statements of how virtual worlds can render people empty.

    I’m all for saving seals and everything, but you have to be at least level 70 to play? Expect about 6 people to go…

    This -is- kinda silly. I mean, the whole point of it is a great idea, but what is this going to help with the real problem? And what happens if you’re not part of the alliance? I’m a proud horde undead and not a seal killer.. I’m not lvl 70 anyway. 😉

    Its not on a PvP realm and only the alliance can join.
    These 4 ‘horde players’ are probably some extremly hard to kill 10 million hp or so undead who needs to be stopped. = No horde players are allowed to join.
    Also its stupid its only on ONE realm..No way im paying WoW more money then I already do! 14 dollars a month is enough- No no 25 dollars to get there and 25 dollars to get back, Sorry PETA:
    Good thing though..It doesnt save the seals, but alot of the younger population, like my self, will open their eyes more.

    I am WoW ‘tarded. If I wasn’t only a baby level 60 Night Elf Hunter on Khadgar, I’d be of some assistance. =)

    I love playing WoW and would be proud to defend cute baby seals from the horde, but I’m not on WhisperWind realm and I’m not going to switch over for 1 day event. I think this event should be on all the realms.

    They should have put in on every server, unless they provide free transfer for this event.

    Nice idea! Even though many people hate the Alliance I’m hopeful that even if I can’t log in on these hours that the Horde members can find some way killing the killers of Seals. I’m sure the irony of humans killing the creatures that are killing the seals is not lost, as real monsters are usually the humans. BUT it’s a EXCELLENT IDEA!!! So well done to PETA for thinking of it!

    Oh please, you expect us players, who routinely slaughter the undead, creatures, beasts, humans, orcs and such to take the time to save a couple baby seals from some measly Horde? Get real.

    erm, shouldn’t you have chosen a PvP server so everyone can get involved on either side? That way it could be slightly more fair since 4 undead horde vs an undetermined number of others is a bit lop-sided.
    Perhaps it could take place on a battleground?

    Terrible! You’re supposed to slaughter humans and innocent people! Those seals are way more important.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
