The Seals of Nam is a global initiative that had its humble beginnings in mid 2010. Founded by well known animal rights campaigner, Pat Dickens, The Seals of Nam aims to unite interested parties to bring the stench of the Namibian seal massacre to the nostrils of an indignant world.
Today, The Seals of Nam is not only recognised as being on the forefront of the battle to end the Namibian hunt, but is fast becoming a leader in seal conservation issues world wide. Our successes can no longer be attributed to just one man, but to a multitude of respected organisations and a broad cross section of individuals.
Through the collaborative efforts of many, The Seals of Nam has garnered the support of celebrities, had representatives appearing on national television networks, been guests on radio shows, and staged successful demonstrations against the Namibian hunt in several leading international cities. We have generated major petitions, had news articles printed in local and international media, provided logistical support to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and even appeared before the Namibian Government along with major industry players such as IFAW, Seal Alert SA, WSPA and others.
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.
We encourage other organisations to join us in our initiative,
to set aside any differences and to put up a united front against the atrocities
that are perpetuated on the Cape fur seals and other pinnipeds around the world.
