The Seals of Nam

BACKGROUND | SOURCE THE SEALS OF NAM

On July 1st, 2012, a quota of 85,000 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.

You can help put an end to this!

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.

We can beat this curelty!

Aside from the cruelty aspect, an independent report shows that seal viewing based ecotourism in Namibia will yield three hundred times 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)

With Namibia facing mounting public outcry and increasing consumer boycotts, we the undersigned are urging the Hon. Minister Bernard Esau to immediately end the annual bloodbath, protect the seals with effective new legislation and to allow all Namibians to benefit from this magnificent tourist drawcard.

Please sign and share this petition. Time is running out and thousands of baby seals are going to beaten to death!

Dear Ombudsman Adv. Walters,

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)

With Namibia facing mounting public outcry and increasing consumer boycotts, we the undersigned are urging you to immediately end the annual bloodbath, protect the seals with effective new legislation, and to allow all Namibians to benefit from this magnificent tourist drawcard.

Thank you for taking the time to read this urgent appeal.

did you ever stop to think just how i feel
i just want to sit on my rocks and ice
if you would leave me be, that would be so nice
my fur is mine, not yours for the taking
just look at all the red blood you are making
go back to your homes, your families, your wives
and leave us seals alone to enjoy our lives

    To Stacy,
    Thank you for sharing and highlighting this important (and horrifyingly bloody!) issue.

    To Karen Lyons Kalmenson, as usual, your words are perfect !!! :)

    May we, worldwide, finally put an end to this horrible atrocity happening in Namibia methodically each year…
    I’ve sent the letter and resigned the petition, using a different email, and my middle name.

    Thank you !
