This week has left me in its dust and the dust has not yet settled!
As part of Fur Free South Africa I have been helping to organise an event for International Day of the Seal (March 15).
This is a day of global action to raise awareness about the brutal and senseless commercial slaughtering of seals. During these commercial seal hunts, tens of thousands of seal pups are killed for their soft skins, which are then sold to international fur markets.
Male seals are killed for their genitals, which are sold in Asia to customers who erroneously believe that these are an aphrodisiac.
The two well-known seal hunts happen in Canada and Namibia.
Fur Free SA is having and online event to protest against these hunts. If you are interested read more @ http://on.fb.me/1Q3fqgB
Feeling sick by looking at the horrific images of seals bludgeoned to death, I was pleased to find this feel-good story on http://cuteoverload.com/
Argyro, is a Mediterranean monk seal. It seems Argyo decided to take life easy on the beach at Samos Island in Greece. Out of the blue Argyro arrived and settled into a beach chair. According to cuteoverload, this chair “has now been sealed off just for her use” .
Dedicated to the millions of seals who are cruelly massacred every year for human greed!
