Each year from July 1st, a quota of 80 000 Cape Fur seal pups are set to be beaten to death in Namibia. The pups are separated from their mothers. They are herded away from the safety of the sea where they are then beaten to death with pick handles. They are stabbed in the throat, often while still alive.
We can beat this cruelty!
A further quota of 6 000 adult bull seals will be set. These are to be shot at point blank range so that their genitals can be exported to the East where they are used to make ineffective sex potions for the Asian Market.
You can help put an end to this!
Aside from the cruelty aspect, an independent report shows that seal viewing based ecotourism in Namibia will yield three hundred % more revenue than the massacre and will create a wealth of job opportunities in a country desperate for employment.
This is not just about animals, but people too!!
Cape Fur Seals are a threatened species. They have suffered massive habitat loss, several mass die offs and they are listed on Appendix II of the United Nations Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. (CITES)
