Seal hunters near Ilulissat, Greenland

Year: 2010 Taken by: Lawrence Hislop
Seal hunting is only legal in 5 countries: Greenland, Norway, Namibia, Russia and Canada. Traditionally, seal hunting, whaling and fishing have been the basis of the economy for the local Inuit population. Hunting in summer is done by boat and in winter, by traditional dogsled. It is also common for men to hunt seal, whale and walrus from kayaks using hand-held spears.
