Following on from my post entitled, They shoot seals don’t they?, I have received a communication from Mark Carter. To say that this gentleman has the courage of his convictions is an understatement. I quote from his own Website:

“Mark Carter is on hunger strike; in order to raise public awareness of shooting seals in the UK and the need for Highly Protected Marine Areas. The British Isles is home to important populations of Common and Grey Seals. Common Seals are in a catastrophic decline and both species can be “confused” when being shot. Shooting gives rise to terrible welfare issues, is inhumane and can leave seal pups to a long lingering death.”

Mark has advised,

The No.10 Petition is in need of a little help. It currently has nearly 350 signatures but requires 500 before the Prime Minister will look into matters; are you able to help spread the word?

Naturally, I am only too happy to assist and would encourage anyone who appreciates the company of seals around the UK shores to sign the petition and to spread the word.

Further information can be found on the Marine Concern Website.
