I spotted him dozing on the ice when we were flying over the harp seal nursery off the coast of Newfoundland last week.
His silvery grey fur was gleaming in the sun. He was so peaceful it was hard to believe he was just miles from the largest slaughter of marine mammals on earth.
But he was one of the lucky ones. A survivor. And that's what we named him.
Watch this video of Survivor basking in the sun, then please make a gift today to save seals and make the slaughter history.
You've been with us over the years making sure we're here to document the bloodshed. Thanks to you, we can keep pressure on the commercial fishing industry and the Canadian government to stop the cruelty. And your outrage, your compassion are what's driving markets for seal fur to close around the world -- most recently in Russia -- so sealers stay home and seals are spared.
But we need you with us again -- right now -- to help ensure ALL seals are safe like Survivor. Please renew your support for seals with a gift of $35 -- or whatever amount you can afford -- and you'll cover the cost of film to help keep our cameras rolling.
Watching Survivor undisturbed in his home, you can almost imagine a world without the Canadian commercial seal slaughter. With your support, we're closer than ever to making that a reality. And I want you there with us when we cross the finish line.
Thank you so much for staying committed to saving seals.
