Chefs Campaign for Seals

A group of America’s favorite celebrity chefs join the HSUS campaign to end Canada’s seal slaughter.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has partnered with 12 of the country’s favorite celebrity chefs, all participants in Bravo’s Top Chef All Stars, to stop the slaughter of seals in Canada. The chefs will be joining more than 5,500 other chefs, restaurants, and grocery stores in boycotting Canadian seafood in order to convince the Canadian fishing industry to end commercial seal hunting. “This is unnecessary cruelty and I am hopeful that as chefs we can make a difference by choosing where our food is sourced from,” says Fabio Viviani, owner and executive chef of Café Firenze in Moorpark, Calif. Currently, the Canadian government is allowing 468,200 seals to be killed this season.
