Organizations to Join:
There are many organizations that have
pledged to fight this barbaric hunt. How
they choose to do this is different
based on the organization and its goals.
Some like Sea Shepherd choose to film
and intervene with the hunt itself.
Others choose to apply pressure to
restaurants and huge consumers of
Canadian seafood such as Red Lobster and
Sea Shepherd - Our most
recommended organization. They actively
enforce antiwhaling laws and are active
in preventing sealing. This is the most
effective of all organizations since
they are more interested in preventing
the killing than documenting it.

Canadian seafood. This is to apply
economic pressure to Canada and
specifically the seafood industry.
