I've seen these animals. You really have to travel to get to them, because the ocean is on the edge of a HORRENDOUSLY INHOSPITABLE desert! There's little wildlife and a LOT of sand and the seals aren't accustomed enough to humans to fear us.

But...Namibia isn't really a wealthy country and people see the animals as CASH.

Greed drives the worst part of human behavior.

Noted. They are actually used for many things besides the fur. Perhaps it would be better to buy the two processing plants and then close them, I would donate money for that.

It may be too much to go to extreme but sometimes we need to do so for good

Forget Overpaid Footballers, Actors, Pop Stars etc. etc. who some go ga ga over, these People are the true Heroes of our Time, with little recognition or financial reimbursement and put their lives on the line to protect our environment and Mother Earth's Creatures. Humbling to say the least. God Speedx

I say he is doing excellent things. and I fully support hi extreme conservation. I'm sorry money is a problem there but why should seals have to die for that? They say it is to protect fish numbers but ti is never the other animals who are eating all the fish but the humans who always seem to feel they can take as much as they want and then blame it on seals and other beings. That reasoning/excuse never works for me. I say go get those poachers and other eco criminals.
