Gillian Anderson wants to save baby seals from the annual hunt on Canada's east coast.

The X-Files star on Wednesday wrote Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau to call for an end to the country's annual commercial seal hunt. Anderson, who has shot TV series in Canada over 20 years, told the Canadian leader that the impact of environmental change was already curtailing the country's annual cull of harp seals.

"Climate change is already decimating ice-dependent seals. It has resulted in less ice in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Without ice, baby seals drown," the Hollywood actress, who is a long-time supporter of PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, told Trudeau in the April 19 letter obtained by THR.
