Seals can heave a sigh of relief…for now!
Today, Canadian Senator Mac Harb will formally introduce a bill to end commercial seal slaughter in Canada.
Russia, who imported 95 percent of Canada's seal pelts has now banned the trade, meaning that there isn't a market for seals anymore.
No market means no more seal hunting!
Harb's bill will introduce sustainable economic programs to sealing regions.
Now it's up to supporters to help the cause!
Joining the fight on PETA's Advocacy site (HERE) and well as tweeting @PETA #SavetheSeals will help make sure seals stay protected.
Way to go, Canada!
