Harpseals.org needs YOU to end the seal hunt now!
With your help, we'll end the seal "hunt" forever.
Note: Almost all positions can be performed from anywhere in the U.S., unless otherwise noted.
If you are inspired to work for the seals on your own, you're not alone. Check out these projects by independent seal activists.
Here are projects completed by seal activists for our Video Uproar Contest of 2014.
For inspiration, here are some celebrities who have taken a stand against the seal hunt in Canada and/or the seal slaughter in Namibia.
Officers and Board Members:
We are looking for new officers and board members for Harpseals.org. Please inquire if you would like to take on a leadership position. These are volunteer positions.
We are looking for a self-directed seal activist to maintain a Twitter account and tweet about the seal hunt and sealing throughout the year, but especially in the spring (when Canadian fishermen kill seals) and summer (when Namibians kill seals). You must be willing to take the time to educate your self about sealing (by reading Harpseals.org). If you are interested, please contact us.
We are also looking for a self-directed seal activist to improve our YouTube channel. If you are familiar with setting up corporate YouTube accounts and are interested in helping Harpseals.org, please contact us.
Newfoundland Outreach Coordinator and Activists:
We are looking for Newfoundland residents, especially those who have a background in marine science or fishery science to do outreach in Newfoundland. Residents of Newfoundland have been subjected to seal hunt propaganda for decades. It's time to spread the truth about seals and sealing. If you have a gift for gab and knowledge of the issues, please contact us.
From time to time, we need answers to legal questions. If you are an attorney who is willing to answer our questions and provide advice pro bono, please contact us.
We are looking for an experienced individual to help with fundraising for key campaigns. This may involve crowdsourcing or other new methods of raising funds. If you are interested, please contact us.
Kids4Seals Project Organizers:
If you have a knack for getting kids revved up about volunteering, if you're creative and have a good understanding of kids ages 8-18, you can be a seal superhero! As a Project Organizer, you can work with kids in your school, neighborhood, scouting troup, church, or other group tol develop great projects for kids. If you are interested, please email us.
We need great salespeople for these crucial volunteer positions. Boycott Recruiters go to restaurants and talk to the chefs and managers, asking them to avoid Canadian seafood and join the boycott. We have a Boycott Recruitment Kit which provides guidance and resources for recruiters. This is a great way to contribute to stopping the seal slaughter. If you are interested in being a Restaurant Recruiter, please contact us.
We are looking for outgoing seal activists to organize or participate in outreach events in their cities. These volunteers will look for tabling opportunities in their regions and set up information booths at festivals, department stores, flea markets, and other venues. If your community has animal-oriented, environmental, or seafood festivals each year, you have a great opportunity to spread the word about the seals and how people can help. We will help you find others in your area to staff the booth. We will also provide materials and pay for all associated costs. Outreach coordinators should also look for opportunities to speak at schools and civic group meetings. If you are intersted, please contact us.
We are looking for people to be on alert to articles on seals and sealing in newspapers and magazines and on internet news sites. It's important to respond to these articles, both with comments and formal letters to editors. We will guide you and edit or proofread your writing.If you are interested, please email us.
Present information or lessons on the harp seal slaughter to students and civic groups. We'll supply the materials, you supply a strong delivery. You can do this once or hundreds of times, as your schedule allows. Contact schools and organizations like rotary clubs and local Sierra club chapters and arrange your own speaking engagements in your neighborhood. If you're a good speaker, please sign up now! If you are a teacher and would like to present these lessons to your students, please order them today (free, of course!) Interested? Email us.
