Reputable organizations are indifferent to the seal hunt and look at it as a sustainable industry. The World Conservation Union is the world's largest conservation network. The Union brings together 82 States, 111 government agencies, more than 800 non-governmental organizations and some 10,000 scientists and experts from 181 countries. The Union's mission is to influence, encourage and assist societies throughout the world to conserve the integrity and diversity of nature and to ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable. This is a very reputable organization and they have no problems with the seal hunt.

At the end of my grand investigation I was left with this. The organizations that agree with, or at least are indifferent to, the seal hunt have an excellent reputation worldwide. The groups that fight against the seal hunt have a poor world wide reputation and make enormous amounts of money from fighting the hunt. There is an endless list of questionable actions undertaken by these groups and their financial practices leave much to be desired.

So what finally pushed me to create this page? Well, it all came to a head when watching the Larry King Live show where the McCartney's, on international television, displayed a flagrant disregard for the issue and the people involved. They used their position and station in an attempt to convince people to take a side in an issue that they themselves knew little to nothing about. At times I like to believe that the general masses are not the easily led sheep, that more times than not, they seem to be. In hopes that some may want to be responsible human beings and research an issue before taking a side I decided to create this site. The site is not meant to be the end all and be all of seal hunting information but maybe a voice for the other side of the issue and a starting point for the journey to make up your own mind.

Lastly and obviously, I am not a professional writer nor have I received any specific training in the area of "creative" writing. With this in mind, please bear with my lack of eloquence in the art. I would also appreciate any corrections to the information presented throughout the site. If you find any information contained within that is not accurate and you can prove it then I will gladly remove said information from the site or make the necessary adjustments.
