Leave our seals alone!

FP-seal

A new conservation group calling itself the Namibia Seal Conservation has come out strongly against other animal rights groups which have been calling for the boycott of locally-made products because of what they call inhumane killings of seals in the country. Oswald Theart, a spokesperson for the group, urged Government this week to ignore activists such as Seal Alert, Seals of Namibia and Sea Shepherd South Africa “as they are merely rebels without a cause.” The Namibia Seals Conservation said it is against cruelty to animals but believe that the current cull practices are the most humane known to man. In the picture: Theart is seen here with a seal on a recent trip to the Walvis Bay Harbour.
