His Excellency George M. Liswaniso High Commissioner High Commission for the Republic of Namibia 6 Chandos St London W1G 9LU Namibia Tourism Board: Colechurch House, 1 London Bridge Walk, London, SE1 2SX Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to you to express my greatest concern about the atrocities against the seals which has already begun in Namibia and which will last through November. During this period, the beaches of Namibia are covered with the blood of 85,000 pups and 7,000 males (bull) seals. This makes Namibia second only in size to the brutal Canadian slaughter. Cape Cross is a tourist resort where seal watching is a popular attraction. The gore from the killing is cleared away before the tourists arrive and they'll never see the seal pups being herded together, away from their mothers and clubbed to death with wooden bats. The adult male seals (bulls) are shot. An economic report commissioned by a coalition of animal welfare groups, including Respect for Animals, concluded and demonstrated that the seals are worth more alive as a tourist attraction than dead as seal products. The two activities, the report concluded, were not compatible. Despite repeated requests to end this cruel hunt, the Namibian government refuses to act and claims the seals are a threat to the fish populations, despite no evidence to support this claim. The European Union has banned the import of all commercial seal products including those from Namibia. In 2011, a boycott of Namibian tourism and Namibian products was launched in response to the continuing cruel slaughter. I will not visit Namibia until the killing of seals is banned. Sincerely, NAME STATE, COUNTRY
