On 1 July 2009, the Namibian seal cull of baby Cape fur seals will become the largest and cruelest seal hunt in the world. For the next 139 days seal clubbers in Namibia will beat to death 91,000 baby seals who are still suckling their mothers. These seal skin imports were banned in the US in 1972. Although I have managed to get the EU to ban Cape fur seal product imports in 2009, and met Namibian Prime Minister Nahas Angula in 2007, Namibia has vowed to go ahead with its baby seal cull.

The latest development, due to the EU Seal ban and world economic crisis, is that Namibian sealers could only find one seal fur buyer in 2008. This individual is Hatem Yavuz, based in Australia. He continues to purchase baby fur skins, which he exports to Turkey, a non-EU member, and he could be the sole reason why Namibia does not announce an end to its seal culling policy, as have Russia and South Africa.

I implore you to politely ask Hatem Yavuz to issue a public letter announcing he will no longer buy Namibian seal fur skins. Thank you very much.
For the Seals
