Stop the Namibia Fur Seal Slaughter

 

PETITION:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/920/994/398/stop-the-nambia-fur-seal-slaughter/

 

 

  • Target: Director of Environmental Affairs, Ministry of Environment and Tourism
  • Sponsored by: Animal Advocates

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 Nambian Ministry of Environment to stop the slaughter of Cape Fur Seals.

Brown Fur Seal


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_fur_seal

 

The brown fur seal (Arctocephalus pusillus), also known as the Cape fur seal, South African fur seal and the Australian fur seal is a species of fur seal.

 

 

DESCRIPTION

The brown fur seal is the largest and most robust fur seal. It has a large and broad head with a pointed snout that may be flat or upturned slightly. The pinnae and vibrissae are long, and the vibrissae may extend backward past the pinnae, especially in adult males. The foreflippers are covered with sparse hair over about three-quarters of their length. The hindflippers are short relative to the large body, with short, fleshy tips on the digits. The size and weight of the brown fur seal depends on the subspecies. Males of the African subspecies (A. p. pusillus) are 2.3 metres (7.5 ft) in length on average and weigh from 200–350 kilograms (440–770 lb). Females are smaller, averaging 1.8 metres (5.9 ft) in length and weighing an average of 120 kilograms (260 lb). Males of the Australian subspecies (A. p. doriferus) are 2–2.2 metres (6.6–7.2 ft) in length and weigh 218–360 kilograms (480–790 lb). Females are 1.2–1.8 metres (3.9–5.9 ft) length and weigh 36–110 kilograms (79–240 lb).

Adult male brown fur seals are dark gray to brown, with a darker mane of short, coarse hairs and a light belly, while adult females are light brown to gray, with a light throat and darker back and belly. The foreflippers of the fur seal are dark brown to black. Pups are born black and molt to gray pelage with a pale throat within three to five months. The skull of the African subspecies has a larger crest between the mastoid process and the jugular process of the exoccipital.

This species is an inquisitive and friendly animal when in the water, and will often accompany SCUBA divers. They will swim around divers for periods of several minutes at a time, even at a depth of 60m. On land, they are far less relaxed and tend to panic when people come near them.

Australian fur seals were hunted intensively between 1798 and 1825 for commercial reasons. Seal hunting stopped in Australia in 1923, and their population is still recovering. Breeding and haul-out sites are protected by law. South African fur seals have a very robust and healthy population. Harvesting of seals was outlawed in South Africa in 1990.

 

 

Brown fur seals are still harvested in Namibia. Around 85,000 pups a year are clubbed to death; their fur is bought by Turkish businessman Hatem Yavuz, and sold to the fashion industry. Many animal activist groups strongly condemn this culling. The seal is a protected species in South Africa; there are now only a million seals in the wild. The quota set by the Namibian government for culling the pups, until 2019, will be a million pups.

Brenda, that was very fast.  Faster than it takes me to type CONGRATULATIONS!

 

Signed petition Stop Nambia Fur Slaughter. Have never heard of it before.

 

Now if we could just get Canada to stop blugeoning seal pups. (Yes, I know this a tangent but this seal hunt is soooo embarrassing to so many Canadians.) I've signed hundreds of petitions and sent emails re that but it never gets anywhere.  I was reading about what we are doing when we click to donate on SEALS on Care 2 :

 

IFAW documents hundreds of examples of seal hunt cruelty each year, from seals being hooked and dragged across the ice while still alive for skinning, to others being shot in the water and dragged by hooks on to the ice, with no attempt made to check for consciousness. By exposing the shocking cruelty of the hunt, IFAW is generating global support for a ban of seal products and an end to Canada's commercial seal hunt.
Your clicks make it possible for IFAW seal hunt observers to continue documenting the cruelty of the hunt, and to keep fighting to ensure we pass historic legislation to ban seal products and end the hunt worldwide.
In fact, in July 2009, the Council of the European Union adopted a regulation to ban the sale of all seal products in the EU. Learn more about this victory here.

 

One day soon this has got to stop!   PM Harper was over in China a little while ago trying to market seal meat and products to them. 

From a Toronto Globe & Mail article Feb. 2012:

 

In a bid to resurrect Canada’s flailing sealing industry, Prime Minister Stephen Harper will make seal product exports a priority on his trip to China next week.
The Conservatives have been pushing to open the Chinese market for more than two years, but little materialized from a tentative deal that the Department of Fisheries and Oceans announced in early 2011.
More related to this story
“Our government will continue to vigorously defend this humane and highly regulated industry and to seek new international markets for Canadian seal products, including China,” Mr. Harper said in a statement released on Thursday.
Although the sealing industry is a small fraction of Canada’s fishing industry on the Atlantic coast, the annual hunt is a hot political topic in Newfoundland and Labrador, where the Conservatives hold many seats and most of the country’s 11,000 registered seal hunters live.
Russia used to be Canada’s largest buyer of seal items, but banned the import of harp seal pelts two months ago, and the European Union has had a ban in effect since 2010. Animal activists say these two bans ring the death knell of the East Coast’s commercial seal hunt.

 

Let's hope!!!

We ought to have a sign made that says "Congratulations, Brenda" to save time typing. lol  Wow! That was fast, Brenda. Way to go!!

I'm having a big Care2 latency problem. I don't get my posts in my mail until at least the next day, so I only had a chance to ask for one letter.

I remember when I lived in New York many moons ago, how snobbish some women were when they boasted about their seal coats. Thinking now about the poor seals and what they go through to line the pockets of the hunters and to stroke the vanity of the seal coat wearers just turns my stomache.
