Put An End to Namibian Seal Clubbing!

Each year beginning July 1, 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, 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 in Namibia. These are to be shot at point-blank range so that their genitals can be exported to the East, where they will be used to make ineffective sex potions for the Asian market. You can help put an end to this!
Take action today and urge the Minister of Fisheries in Namibia to end this cruel madness!
This action is presented in collaboration with the new Pivot TV series The Operatives airing Sundays at 10 p.m. EST/7 p.m. PST.

With Namibia facing mounting public outcry and increasing consumer boycotts, we the undersigned are urging the Hon.
