Say No To Seal And Sea Lion Slaughter!

Say No To Seal And Sea Lion Slaughter!

Lifeforce is releasing this new petition to urge the government to not approve a West Coast Seal and Sea Lion Hunt.

A First Nations society with connections to the fishing industry is lobbying the Canadian Government to permit a West Coast Sea lion and Seal Hunt! “The Pacific Balance Pinniped Society” wants to start a new industry to market the unsafe meat for “high end” restaurants in North America, Europe and Asia and for pet food! They also want to sell fur and blubber oil. There is a ban on seal-based products in Europe and other countries that includes meat, boots, and coats from the East Coast Seal Hunt.

Re: Orcas Must Not Be Mistreated Like Lab Animals!

Take Action Now! Protect Orcas!

1. Immediately put a moratorium on the harmful, invasive research that includes over 15 years of failed experiments! It has been proven that this research has not prevented the ongoing threats to orcas!

2. Take immediate actions that have immediate benefits by enacting the Emergency Orders under the Species At Risk Act and US laws. (Read petition: https://www.change.org/p/join-us-in-asking-johnathan-wilkinson-catherine-mckenna-marc-garneau-and-justine-trudeau-to-save-the-orca-families-from-extinction)

3. Canada and US governments should enact a public comment period with full disclosure of all experimental plans. Requests for information by Lifeforce Ocean Friends were not answered. Endangered orcas must not be studied to death by cumulative experiments that have been part of the problems NOT solutions!

4. Stop these life threatening experiments funded by lucrative aquarium industry grants and our tax money!

There is scientific proof that targeting “predators” will not save salmon!
Say No to a Senseless Slaughter! Say Yes to Fishing Moratoriums!

The Ponds Of Tears!

The Ponds Of Tears!

The Big Pond Problems
For over 25 years I have been studying the behaviour and travel patterns of cetaceans. There is so much more that we have yet to learn from these complex, intelligent whales and dolphins. History has proven that humans were more interested in profits from the killing and captivity of these sentient beings. Industries have also broken the fragile ocean food chain that we all depend on. Fishing moratoriums on salmon, herring and many others must be implemented or there will be barren ponds forever. Saving the ecosystems of Little Ponds is also in grave need.

“Ponds of Tears”
While I have included images of the precious nature moments there are also the “Ponds of Tears” that shows the sadness that continues. Precious lives continue to endure the suffering.

I continue to expose the Lifeforce “3 Es” that look at How Humans “Eat, Entertain, and Experiment”. Our education campaigns expose the endless animal abuses while humane and healthier alternatives are available. Lucrative industries continue to profit from their suffering.

Starting in the 80s, Lifeforce exposed the atrocities of experiments on animals, animals in captivity exploited for entertainment and animal cruelty for food. Lifeforce accomplishments include the shocking photos of spinal cord experiments on kittens; investigating and laying the first Canadian Cruelty to Animals Charges that stopped the chronic restraint of wild caught baboons in research; the first bans on both wild and domestic animal acts in circuses; helping stop the Sealand, BC capture of the endangered Southern Resident orcas in 1982, proposing a Vancouver Cetacean Bylaw that now bans captivity at the Vancouver Aquarium; abuses in animal transport and much, much more.

We must go “Green” to phase out all the pollution industries. And I have always realized that the answer to ending experiments on animals is our “Stop Vivisection Canada!” campaign. This gives this billion dollar industry the maximum of 10 years to phase out – similar to replacing gas with electric vehicles. Read about the facts and the lucrative businesses ranging from animal breeders to manufactures of literally “torture” devices.
