400,000.

That's how many baby harp seals the Canadian fisheries minister has said that sealers will be allowed to bludgeon or shoot to death this year. These sensitive, social animals will be horrifically killed—often while other seals watch and wail in terror. Seals can be legally killed in Canada when they're just weeks old, and most will be stripped of their skin before they reach 3 months of age.

Will you help us protect seals and other animals who face being killed for their skin by making an urgently needed gift today?

We've done a lot of work on this campaign, and the sealing industry is now a shadow of its former self. But that shadow will still kill many seals this year. Despite growing opposition to the killings both in Canada and around the world—not to mention the shrinking number of markets for seal products—the single-largest commercial slaughter of marine mammals on the planet will soon begin on the ice floes off Canada's eastern coast. We've never been closer to ending this massacre, and we must press forward now.
