I have a confession to make. I’m addicted to science-fiction. I loved it all my life and I never can get enough of it. Like many, I’m a fan of Battlestar Galactica. It’s not only a great story with theological and philosophical questions being raised throughout the whopping story line. The cast seems also attentive of the plight of animals.

Recently Jamie Bamber posed in a PETA campaign against bear fur: Bare skin, not bear skin

Jamie Bamber

PETA states on it’s website:

he series has been so full of exciting plot twists and surprises that it’s anybody’s guess right up until the last minute, but fans can always count on Jamie Bamber’s character, Lee “Apollo” Adama, to fight for justice and help those in need—and always look really good doing it! It didn’t surprise us 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.

Each year, countless black bears in Canada are shot and killed, often in front of their cubs, using a cruel practice called “bait and shoot,” which is banned in British Columbia and many U.S. states. Their fur is then sent to the U.K. to be used to make caps for the Queen’s guards.

Jambie Bamber is not the only one on the cast who cares about animals. Tricia Helfer is a huge animal lover and has lended her face to several campaigns, including this PETA campaign:

Besides the PETA campaign, she has made donations to the Richmond Animal Protection Society (R.A.P.S.).
