Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

Namibia, a country on the West coast of Africa and bordering on South Africa, is known for its deep red sand dunes and rugged coast line. sand duneSadly, every year the red intensifies on these dunes, from the blood of massacred Cape Fur seals – hence “fifty shades of red” (The Seals of Nam).

Seals of NamDespite numerous actions being taken against the Namibian government, Cape Fur seals continue to be bludgeoned to death.

According to the Namibian government, these marine mammals are killed to protect fish stocks. This, however, has been disproved by studies that have shown that the seal population on that coastline has no significant economic impact on the fishery industry. 

Campaigners against this annual “cull” argue that the seals are killed in order to sell their fat and fur.

It is the seal pups who are beaten to death with spiked clubs for their soft fur. They are only a few months old when this happens.

The male seals are killed for their genitals, which are sold in Asia as an aphrodisiac.                                                                                                             clubbing seals 

The Seals of Nam, a South African organisation, campaigns against the senseless killing of seals in Namibia, for commercial purposes.

This organisation was founded by animal rights campaigner Pat Dickens in 2010 and is now extremely influential globally. The Seals of Nam collaborates internationally with other organisations that fight to conserve our oceans and all life that rightfully inhabit its waters. 

The Seals of Nam has initiated many actions against the brutality inflicted on the Seals in Namibia and offers logistical support” to like-minded organisations.

In its own words:

“We will continue to fight for an end of the Namibian hunt. We believe it to be unsustainable, illegal, immoral, uneconomical and a violation of human rights as well as basic animal welfare standards”.
