Earthrace Conservation hopes to bring about lasting change that will benefit marine life and the oceans.

About the PetitionEach 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! 

To: The Hon. Bernhard Esau, Minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources, NamibiaWith Namibia facing mounting public outcry and increasing consumer boycotts, we the undersigned are urging the Hon. Minister Bernhard Esau to immediately end the annual bloodbath, protect the seals with effective new legislation, and allow all Namibians to benefit from this magnificent tourist draw card.Sincerely,[Your name here]
