The sea lions that live in Chilean waters are at risk of needless slaughter. They need your help, today - take action now to protect them!
In Chile, sea lions are a protected species. But the government is planning to use loopholes in current legislation to open the door to a mass killing (referred to as a "cull"), despite huge opposition from the people of Chile.
If they do, thousands of these sociable sea mammals will die.
The plan for a mass cull is a reckless reaction to the scarcity of fish in Chilean waters. In fact, decades of over-fishing are to blame.
Without protection: the Chilean government will approve a plan to cull thousands of sea lions.
Without protection: the sea lions are exposed to further exploitation, such as capture and live export to "perform" in aquariums and zoos.
Without protection: the sea lions are at risk of being killed and their body parts exported to Asia for use in aphrodisiac medicines.
