Kimberly Carroll has been a media personality on W Network, CBC Television and Radio, and CTV to name a few. As an activist, Kimberly is passionate about human rights, Canadian politics, and environmental issues, but is most devoted to animal protection with a focus on factory farming and the Canadian commercial seal hunt.

The Harper Seals Band was formed to raise awareness of Canada's commercial seal hunt through their music.

The band wants to raise the profile of the issue and encourage their fans to write to Prime Minister Stephen Harper about ending the commercial seal hunt.
