Inuit Sila

Inuit Sila is a campaign and NGO for, by and with Inuit seal hunters. Our aim is to improve the Inuit seal hunters’ possibilities for making a living from their sustainable resources. Since 2012 we have worked to promote an awareness of the Inuit seal hunt in the Arctic as both legal and sustainable. 40 years of campaigns against seal hunt has severely damaged Inuit societies, and with the EU ban on seal products in 2009 the market collapsed and the export dropped by nearly 90 % despite the ban’s Inuit exemption.
