Marine Mammals in the Canadian Arctic
Rapidly shrinking ice caps pose a powerful and certain threat to the well being of many mammals in the Canadia Artic.
Pollution, hunting, shrinking food supply and unprotected oceans, are only a few more issues effecting the longevity of many species in the Artic.
CMEPS advocates for the conservation of coastal areas and ocean depths, protection from agricultural and municipal runoffs, stop to freighters cutting their way through the Arctic ice, and at least a temporary moratorium on Arctic hunting and exploration
Capturing fish and animals comes with all sorts of violence and pollution
animals should be studied in their natural environment and with no duress imposed on them
To protect unique areas and species
To examine better strategies for studying, protecting
and conserving marine mammals in the Artic
For countries to collectively stop the exploitation of crucial habitat
don't buy tickets to places or events that exploit animals or keep animals
boycott venues and businesses that support all forms of captivity
don't watch movies, or support and/or participate in any form of entertainment that uses live or dead animals
A little bit of CMEPS history
