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.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO SAVE THE SEALS OF NAM

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 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 petitions. Time is running out and thousands of baby seals are going to beaten to death!

“Namibia is responsible for the largest slaughter of wildlife on earth. Each year, 85 000 baby seals are violently beaten to death for their fur and a further 6 000 adult bulls are shot at point blank range. The Cape Fur seal is a threatened species and is listed on Appendix II of CITES.”

I wrote this song and created the video as a special dedication to the tens of thousands of innocent seals which are ruthlessly killed every year during the Namibian seal slaughter. It is my sincere wish that this cruel practice will come to an end forever and I wholeheartedly support any efforts to make this wish a realization.

LET US ALL UNITE TO PROTEST AGAINST THE SEAL SLAUGHTER WITH HEART AND SOUL
