For years, we have shared a personal commitment to
animal protection. Today we'd like to ask for your help in

videographers to the ice so they can document the hunt, exposing
the hideous cruelty that the Canadian government doesn't want
the world to see.
plan to make sure that the world knows what happens on those
isolated ice floes in the middle of the sea, and we will not
