Every Monday I usually open with saying how much I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends.
It just seems like the weekend goes by FAR to fast!
I know you all feel the same way!
Regardless though, I do hope you all had a good one!
I bring you a very serious topic today for OMD Monday.
I have touched on this before, you can see that post HERE.
In my very own Country, we have been battling a HUGE issue.
Seals. Not even just seals, but baby seals. Baby seals who are not even three months old yet!
There are those who have been working very hard here in Canada and across the world , to stop the killing of these beautiful baby seals.I have done a small part in sharing as much as possible, signing petitions, and sending messages to our government. I will be the first to say it feels pretty darn good when you get an email saying thanks for all I have done.....although, I am not naive, and I realize my part is only a small one. Don't kid yourself though, petitions do more then you might think! Between that and sharing about a cause, for some of us, it is simply all we can do.
I know sometimes I drift away from blogging about dogs or cats on my OMD posts, it's just that when topics like this arise, I feel the need to bring attention to them. I do apologize for the dog and cat free post.
I would like to now share an infographic with you. Credit to the International Humane Society.
Fashion . . . this is the reason our baby seals are being murdered.
How horrible is that?
There is an upside this year however. Seal slaughter has drastically gone down in numbers.
Because we care!
Because you care!
Because people are not sitting quiet while this is happening!
I have a video to share with you as well. It is titled "The ones who got away"
Watch as baby seals play free, and swim in the water while the boats drive right past.
The theory as to why they are driving past these seals is because of the animal advocates and the International Humane society who are taking videos of them. These videos have gone viral and are bringing it down on the slaughter. This is literally slowing down the slaughter.
Take a moment to look at the video. There is nothing in this video showing harm to any seals.
I bet right about now you are wondering how you can help?
The answer to that is in these websites. Feel free to check them out and learn more about some easy simple ways you can help end seal slaughter.
