Saimaa ringed seal
One of the most endangered seals in the world
With only about 480 individuals now in the wild, the Saimaa ringed seal is one of the most endangered seals in the world. Partly due to our campaigning for fishing regulations, springtime deaths of ringed seal pups from entanglement in fishing nets have decreased. We advise and guide people in many ways: visit schools and organize public events and summer happenings in the Lake Saimaa district to provide information about the ringed seal and its conservation.

Help save the Saimaa ringed seal
We are actively working to secure the future of the Saimaa ringed seal. Our actions include e.g. campaigning for a ban of fishing nets on Lake Saimaa, plowing man-made snowbanks to help seals in their nesting on mild winters, participating in the legislative work regarding the seals, advising and guiding people, visiting schools and organizing public events to provide information about the ringed seal and its conservation.
