Shooting seals

Reckless fish farming is turning our oceans into cemeteries.

You can save ocean wildlife from corporate greed -- it starts with a tiny island off the West coast of Scotland. Fearless ocean defenders need your help today to take on the greedy salmon industry and stop the destruction.

Can you rush an urgent donation to these volunteers?

A,

As you read these words, an island of just 5,000 people is gearing up to battle a worldwide fish farm bully.

The Scottish Salmon Company plans to surround Scotland’s picturesque Isle of Arran with a grotesque super-sized salmon farm.

Without your help, this toxic factory farm could fill the crystal-clear waters with dead fish and feces. Seals that get too close could be shot, and ear-splitting sirens could be set-up to drive them away from their home.

You can stop this hellscape from becoming a reality, A. That’s why Arran locals have asked for your help today.

We have just 10 days to convince authorities to reject this mega-farm. To do that, we need evidence of the danger to marine life. If you chip in CA$94 today you’ll rent them an ocean-defending boat -- so Arran’s ocean defenders can scour the seabed and prove that precious protected animals live in these waters.

It could be the silver bullet they desperately need but they can’t do it without your help -- please, can you chip in to save our oceans from fish farming?

This is about way more than one island. Our hunger for cheap fish is turning seas across the world into toxic factory farms. Mega-corporations are racing to profit off of more cheap fish -- companies are setting out to double their territories in the coming years.

Seals, dolphins, and fish can’t survive the onslaught of disease, chemicals, feces, and rotting carcasses.

A, we have to step in before it’s too late. Arran’s group of volunteers isn’t scared of corporate bullies. When the Scottish Salmon Company came to the island to sweet talk authorities, 160 outraged locals stormed the meeting to fight to protect their home.

In the final sprint of their battle against the Scottish Salmon Company, they risk losing without you backing them up. If enough of us chip in just today, they can buy a people-powered boat to collect the evidence they need to save their home -- and our oceans.

A, you’ve already changed the salmon industry. Just last year, over 33,000 members like you demanded better hygiene on salmon farms, making headlines and pressuring the authorities into championing stricter standards for waste pollution and sea lice control.

The SumOfUs community has shown time and time again that you’ll protect those on the frontlines fighting for our planet. You did it when the people of Osceola in the USA faced bankruptcy after Nestlé tried to pump its precious water supply. And you showed up for countless communities facing fracking in their back garden.

So please, A, will you show up in strength for the people of Arran?
