Although harp seals aren’t classified as endangered or threatened and are actually recognized as “least concern” on the conversation status spectrum, they are the most commercially hunted seal species. Their fur fluff is a highly valued resource, and hundreds of thousands of harp seals are hunted and killed for it each year. Although there are strict rules and regulations in place designed to limit the number of harp seals hunted, some researchers believe the current rate cannot be sustained over a long period of time without crippling the global harp seal population.
