Re: “Human behaviour is at the root of orca plight

Now orcas are being exploited by the fishing industry claiming that seals and sea lions must be killed to save the salmon!

Who is really responsible for devastating the fragile ocean food chain? Was it humans or wildlife? History would prove that it was humans. We all must mend the broken ocean food chain!

Who else do you kill besides the seals and sea lions? Do you kill all the other fish eaters such as herons, eagles, bears, dolphins, porpoises, and whales?

Humans have the choice to go to grocery stores and their gardens while wildlife does not have choices. Plant based fish products can replace wild fish as being done with other meat habits.

Salmon and other fish habitats have also been destroyed by whale watch companies also running fishing charters, human development, animal excrement from factory farming, slaughter house wastes (ex. Lifeforce found a former one in Victoria, BC dumping the bloodied wastes into a salmon stream), fish farming, logging, treating the oceans as a garbage dump, dumping human sewage into the water ways and oceans, oil spills and so on.

Time to give wildlife their "quota" since the growing human populations have plundered and devastated more than their share. In order to Save the Orcas emergency actions must be implemented immediately under the Species at Risk Acts! This must include minimum 5 year moratoriums on Commercial, Sport and First Nation fishing!

DFO previously recommended against a West Coast Seal Hunt because they are unsafe to eat due to high levels of PCBs, mercury, flame retardants, etc.. The older the seal or sea lion the more contamination and DFO thought eating baby pinnipeds would not be publicly supported!
