You can't take quotas of a 350,000 of a species each year and expect it to survive. The pressure to hunt a species beyond sustainable population levels will inevitably lead to a non-sustainable hunt.
When you add new uncertainties about how global warming is impacting fragile arctic environments, an expanded hunt means the impacts on seal populations are at best uncertain.
We oppose any human activity harmful to populations of seals. We oppose the killing of seals for commercial trade. We oppose taking animals from endangered, threatened or seriously reduced populations, from populations whose status is unknown or where it is thought a hunt may have an adverse effect.
