by | Feb 8, 2006

Captain Paul Watson, a co-founder of Greenpeace who went on to found the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society–and whose lifelong activism as a defender of all creatures of the sea has been recogized globally (for instance, Time magazine in 2000 named him one of the environmental heroes of the 20th century)–discusses the annual seal hunt in his native Canada, including its history and how it’s changed in recent decades, the government’s support and subsidiziation (and supposed raationale) of the yearly slaughter of these baby harp seals, the boycott of Canadian seafood sold at Red Lobster and other large restaurant operations as an economic gambit intended to hamper the seal hunt, and more.
