Getting Active for Seals
Spread the word about the seal slaughter by ordering free leaflets that you can hand out in busy areas within your community. Not only will this increase the level of awareness about the seal slaughter, it also has the potential to recruit hundreds of people to the cause. Request leaflets and get started today! Remember: please include your full mailing address when placing your request.
Sometimes the pen really is mightier than the sword (or the hakapiks used to bash in seals' skulls!), and you can prove it! Sending letters to your local newspaper and other media outlets about the Canadian seal slaughter is a great way to reach the public and keep the topic on the tips of everybody's tongues. Check out PETA's Guide to Letter-Writing and you'll be on your way to getting published in no time.
Organize a Demonstration
Protesting is a fun, easy, and effective way to expose the cruelty of the seal slaughter. It can be as simple as one person with a sign and an hour to spare.
