Seals are cute, fluffy and ridiculously awesome, but sadly, this is the worst time of year to be a seal in Canada. We’re nearing the beginning of Canada’s annual seal slaughter in which thousands of seals (mostly babies) die for their fur. Hunters beat, shoot, and even hook seals through their eyes and cheeks, then drag them across the ice—sometimes skinning the pups while they’re still conscious. Now it seems Canada is also going to start selling seal meat to China in an effort to make up for lost profits, since everyone else in the world knows these horrifying deeds sound more like the plot to a zombie film than the act of sane humans.
Over the next few months, we’ll be giving you different ways to speak out against this cruelty and here’s our next one: We want you to use your homework to help seals. Homework (groan!) sucks, I know, but not when you’re speaking out against seals being bludgeoned to death. Here are some ideas to help get your minds in hero mode:
These are just 4 of many ways you can use school assignments to help spread the word against this barbaric ritual. Send us your project and let us know your classmate’s reactions, and we’ll give you 1,000 Street Team points.
How do you plan on saving seals with your next assignment?
P.S. If you’re not on the peta2 Street Team yet, you should join today so I don’t cry. It’s FREE and a great way to help animals and get free stuff.
