Investigations

whitecoat harp seal pupHarpseals.org needs YOU to end the seal hunt now!

With your help, we'll end the seal "hunt" forever.

 

Did you know that products made from harp seal pups have been found in countries with bans on these products?

Smuggling is one way the seal hunt is being perpetuated. With legal markets for seal products closing, the sealing industry is resorting to smuggling these products.

We need your help to find this contraband so that we can shut down these operations.

Harp seal oil

seal oil capsules - Chinese labelHarp seals pups have a layer of blubber under their fur that protects them from the cold. The blubber adheres to the skin, so, when sealers skin the seal pups, they collect the blubber as well.

The seal blubber is processed into capsules and then sold as health food supplements because it contains omega-3 fatty acids.

Read more about harp seal oil, how it is smuggled, and how you can help stop this trade here.
