Seal Defense Campaign 2008!
Sea Shepherd Crew to Shift from the Southern Ice to the Northern Ice
Once again, the Sea Shepherd organization starts it annual fund
raising campaign by spreading lies about the seal hunt...using the
pictures of snow white cuddly seals to enrage a public....despite the
fact that those seals ARE NOT HUNTED.
Actually the pictures are harp seals and they are slaughtered by being
battered to death.

Whitecoats have not been hunted for more than twenty years.
That was only stopped due to international protest.
Expose cruel, senseless slaughter of wildlife? Because it's the right
thing to do even though a few weirdo's like yourself may get their
kicks from cruelty.
The hunt is cruel, brutal and inhumane. The hunters treat humans in
the same manner who should dare to protest about their evil deeds.

The WWF has stopped protesting it because they've
determined the hunt is sustainable and humane.
WWF never did complain. WWF are a pro hunt group and was formed by
trophy hunters to ensure the survival of it's prey species. They have
successfully conned society into thinking they care for wildlife and
try very hard to obscure their agenda.
Nice try Mr Gnome but thanks for the opportunity of putting the record
While your here and so keen to remove the fishing gnome angler groups
from your post, which I have reinstated,perhaps you could tell us
where's the fun in sitting on your fat arses on the edge of oversized
fishbowls, throwing loaves of bread into the water. What kind of lard
arse hobby is that?
The Wicked Wildlife Fund
The WWF Endorses the Killing of Wild Animals, Too
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) gives special meaning to the word
conservation. The organization, founded in 1961 by a group of
wealthy trophy hunters, apparently believes that conserving animals
means keeping them around long enough for well-heeled sportsmen to
blast them out of the woods, oceans, skies, plains of Africa, and
jungles of Asia. Past WWF chapter presidents include C.R. Pink
Gutermuth, who also served as president of the National Rifle
Association, and trophy hunter Francis L. Kellogg, who is legendary
for his massive kills. In its early days, the WWF even used fur
auctions to raise funds.
Since then, the WWF has learned that most people are appalled by
hunting and trapping, so today, the organization veils its true stance
under phrases like sustainable development, arguing that killing is
acceptable under some circumstances. When answering difficult
questions about its policy on hunting, trapping, and whaling, the WWF
is careful never to state outright that it approves of all these
activities. But dont be fooled, the WWFs intentions are all too
clear and deadly.
According to the Web site of the WWFs Canadian office, WWF is not an
animal welfare organization. We support the hunting and consumption of
wild animals provided the harvesting does not threaten the long-term
survival of wildlife populations. WWF has never opposed a sustainable
seal hunt in northern or eastern Canada. However, despite the WWFs
portrayal of the situation, the Canadian seal hunt is anything but a
subsistence huntit is the largest slaughter of marine mammals in
the world. Quotas established by the Canadian government have soared
to an all-time high: 350,000 seals per year for the next three years.
Not since the mid-1800s, when unrestricted slaughter saw a million
seals per year killed, has so much blood been shed on the ice off
Canadas East Coast.
Worse is that the Canadian government has stated in internal documents
that having the WWFs support for any raise in seal quotas is
important, and the WWFs position statement suggests that it had been
working with the Canadian government before the quota was announced.
In other words, the WWF had the power to help avert the largest quota
of harp seal pups in history but chose, instead, to let it happen
without so much as a word of opposition.
While the WWF states that it opposes commercial whaling, it does
support the slaughter of whales by native tribes and under some other
conditions. When asked directly about its policy, WWF is vague,
stating: WWFs views on whether sustainable whaling should be
permitted derive from its mission to conserve nature and ecological
processes and to help build a future in which humans live in harmony
with nature. In the past, WWF officials have clearly stated that
WWF International has the national WWF organizations behind it in the
view that as soon as one can ensure a sustainable commercial harvest
of the great whales under secure international control, then whaling
will no longer be a WWF concern.
As one would expect of an organization founded by hunters, the WWF
does not oppose the slaughter of animals with guns and other weapons
for sport. Rather than working to stop the killing, the WWF believes
that hunting should be regulated, arguing that wealthy trophy hunters
can bring income to poorer nations. The WWF claims that it has no
power to stop hunting, stating, The decision to allow trophy hunting
is a sovereign one made entirely by the governments concerned.
will continue to monitor governments enforcement of important trade
laws to ensure that trophy hunting is done within the legal standards
of that area.
The WWF believes that cullinganother way of saying
killingelephants is acceptable, as is the trade in ivory, because
the profits that it brings spur governments to keep elephants from
going extinct. In 2000, U.S. News & World Report reported that WWF
representatives traveled to Nairobi to ask the United Nations to lift
the ban on the ivory trade in order to allow a sustainable harvest of
ivory for horns and hunting trophies.
The WWFs bizarre viewthat we must kill some animals now in order to
save animals to kill laterhas proved false time and again. The trade
in ivory has only encouraged rampant poaching, the senseless slaughter
of elephants. The WWF tries to duck the issue by falsely stating, The
decision to cull, or to select animals from the herd for removal or
death, is indeed an agonizing choice, but it is one made entirely by
the governments concerned and there is no international involvement in
As with hunting and whaling, the WWF refuses to condemn the massive
killing of animals with steel-jaw leghold traps. While calling itself
a preservationist organization that seek[s] to be the voice for
those creatures who have no voice, the WWF stands back from the
issue, stating that the trade in furs, skins, and other products of
animals that are not endangered isnt the focus of our campaign.
But no matter how hard the WWF tries to greenwash its support of
animal slaughter, its real message rings out loud and clear: Animals
are ours to hunt, trap, kill, poison, and use as we see fit. And
although appeals to preserve genetic diversity, ecosystems, and the
planet sound good on paper, they mean little if what the WWF is really
advocating is more efficient killing fields.
Despite an ongoing international tourist boycott that was called in
response to the wolf control program in Alaska, in which at least
100 wolves have been shot as of March 2004, the WWF is promoting
several trips to Alaska throughout June, July, and August 2004 as part
of WWF Travel, an ecotourism program. When asked why the WWF was
sending its members to Alaska, effectively undermining efforts to save
wolves in the state, the WWF travel desk representative stated that
the WWF did not consider the matter of wolf-killing a priority.
