Protect Seals: The Humane Society of the United States
A personal Message from heather and Paul McCartney.

Click Here to help the seals Dear Fredy,

For years, we have shared a personal commitment to animal protection. Today we'd like to ask for your help in supporting an issue that is deeply important to us -- stopping Canada's massive seal hunt.

We have just returned from a trip to the seal nursery on the ice floes in the Gulf of St. Lawrence in Canada. We walked on the ice among mother seals as they nursed their newborn babies.

There are no words to express how breathtaking the landscape is, with nothing but ice and ocean as far as the eye can see. The only sounds we heard were the wind and the cries of the baby seals, calling out to their mothers.

But in just a few weeks, the boats will arrive, and the cries of the baby seals will be those of terror and agony as sealers clamber onto the ice with their clubs and guns. The pristine white of the ice will be stained with the blood of these baby seals, bludgeoned and shot to death so the sealers can sell their skins to the fur industry.

Today, we desperately need your help to stop this slaughter.

We believe that if we all work together, we can convince the Canadian government that now is the time to end the hunt forever. That's why we are asking you to make as generous a gift as you can to help The Humane Society of the United States continue to fight to save Canada's baby seals.

The HSUS's ProtectSeals campaign is bringing all compassionate and humane-thinking citizens of the world together to pressure the Canadian government to end this hunt forever. Your donation will be used exclusively for the ProtectSeals campaign and will enable The HSUS to send a team of experts, journalists, and 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.

We 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 rest until the slaughter has ended forever.  Please donate today.
