International Day of Action for the Seals

Protest Against the Seal Hunt: Putting Pressure on the Sealers Before the Slaughter Begins

Los Angeles Protest Against Seal Hunt

Until the massacres of seals end, compassionate people around the world will speak up, rally, demonstrate, and get the word out on the streets. Harpseals.org continues to organize, assist with, and promote events all over the world. The Canadian government will not fail to notice the outrage at the continued seal hunt.

The International Day of Action for Seals is typically on March 15th; however, some groups choose other dates. Below we list events taking place around the world. If you are organizing an event that is not listed, please contact us.
