International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)’s Seal Team Director, Sheryl Fink, has just let me know that Russia has banned the import and
export of harp seal skins. This is a huge victory as the Canadian Government estimates that Russia receives 90% of Canada’s exports of seal skins.
IFAW supporters have worked so hard to help us close down the markets for seal products around the world.
Next goal end to Canada’s commercial harp seal hunt.
Mother Nature and her seals thanks everyone for their continued support and for saving their skins for them(the seals) to wear.
