Jamie Bamber Demands Justice for Bears!

Join Jamie in Helping Bears - Take Action Below

As the hit ITV1 drama Law and Order returns to UK screens, DS Matt Devlin - played by Jamie Bamber -  proves there's nothing quite like fighting for justice and helping those in need – and always look really good doing it, of course!

It didn't surprise us one bit that Jamie is like that in real life too. That's why he bared his skin in PETA's newest ad to help save black bears killed for their fur. When Jamie learned how Canadian black bears are killed to make the Queen's Guards' ceremonial caps, the British-born actor jumped at the chance to help. "I initially decided to do the PETA ad because a great friend of mine in L.A., Lucy Davis, had just done a similar ad, and I love Lucy and it was a cause I didn't know about – I'll be honest. So as soon as Lucy opened my eyes, I was thrilled to join her and do my bit."

It takes an entire bear's hide to make just one cap, and Jamie agrees with PETA and compassionate people worldwide that fake fur is the way to go and that bear-baiting should be stopped. "The obvious alternative is to make caps out of faux fur. You know, use synthetic materials to avoid killing a beautiful animal. They're not to keep warm. It's not particularly freezing outside Buckingham Palace. You could wear something else. And you could certainly wear faux fur."

Join Jamie and thousands of other compassionate people by signing the petition below calling for a humane alternative to the Guards' bearskin caps.

Sign this petition:

Instead of financially supporting the shameful slaughter of black bears for The Queen's Guards' ceremonial caps, Great Britain should set a compassionate example by switching to a humane and progressive alternative and commit to stopping the killing of black bears.
