Sea Shepherd and stakeholder partners including Seal Alert South Africa, South African Seal Saving Initiative (SASSI), International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), and Seals of Nam, will be united in their continued attempts to fight for the seals of Namibia. Not only is the Cape fur seal listed and protected by CITES Appendix II, but Namibian legislation outlaws the repeated clubbing to death, torture, or harassment of any animals – including seals. Despite the law, Namibia still condones the largest mass slaughter of marine mammals on the planet. Sea Shepherd will not back down until this mass slaughter of defenseless beings comes to an end.
