It seems that the former model and actress, known for her stunning looks and passionate support for environmental issues, found an unlikely ally in Putin. But make no mistake about it: Putin himself considers the protection of environment as a top priority.
"I would love to have the opportunity to meet and to discuss how, on behalf of my Foundation, I can forge a constructive relationship with the Russian government over issues related to wildlife, animals and the environment," a statement from the Pamela Anderson Foundation said.
If Putin's too busy to meet Anderson, the former model would like to meet with Sergei Donskoi, the Russian Minister of Natural Resources and the Environment.
"Because of Russia's intervention on behalf of the seals, I have come to appreciate just how effective Russia can be in addressing these issues that I am so very concerned with," the statement said.
When it comes to environmental protection, Anderson just never quits. Earlier this month, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society brought forth a story about the Winter Bay, a cargo vessel stocked with 770 kg (1,700 lbs) of illegally captured whale meat, planning to sail from Iceland to Japan through the Northwest Passage. Part of the cargo's route would be through Russian territorial waters and Anderson hopes to use Putin's international influence to prevent the ship with the illegally captured whale meat from reaching Japan.
