In Namibia, South Africa, 85,000 Cape Fur Seals pups are scheduled to be slaughtered, by being beaten to death on July 1st, 2012.
An additional 6,000 adult bulls seals will be shot at point black range, and their genitals will be exported to the East where they are used to make ineffective sex potions for the Asian Market. This, despite they are listed on Appendix II of the United Nations Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.
Cape Fur Seals are a threatened species. They have suffered massive habitat loss and several mass die offs and should not be subjected to this annual slaughter. We ask the Namibian Ministry of Environment to stop the slaughter of Cape Fur Seals.
