Dear jeanne,
I have some really wonderful news to share with you today. Taiwan has just passed a historic ban on all commercial trade in marine mammals! This is a major step forward in marine mammal protection, and a key development in the campaign to end Canada’s commercial seal hunt.
HSI and our partner group EAST have been working since 2010 to close the Taiwanese market for seal products and today we can declare victory. The Canadian government lobbied hard against us trying to block this ban, but we pushed back and we succeeded.
Taiwan’s decision has set an important example for other nations in the region and will hopefully help to inspire China to follow suit. The movement to end seal product trade is spreading in Asia and we are thrilled.
Today is a great day for seals and we could not have done this without your continued support. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Rebecca Aldworth
