IFAW is going to "The Front"

Attention: Assignment Editor, Environment Editor, News Editor, Science Editor, World News Editor OTTAWA, CANADA--(CCNMatthews - April 7, 2006) - The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) wishes to inform all media that IFAW will be going to the commercial seal hunt on the Front, off the coast of Newfoundland, when it opens on Wednesday, April 12. We will be observing and documenting the hunt to the extent that conditions allow.

As soon as possible, IFAW will attempt to provide video footage of the hunt to all interested media. IFAW spokespeople will also be available from the location for interviews in English, French and Spanish.

Due to weather and several unusual conditions this year, we are still in the process of confirming our locations and logistics. We will provide information as it becomes available.
