Sea Shepherd Flees Namibia

Date: 1/10/2011

Sea Shepherd conservation activists aborted their first anti-seal culling mission into Namibia. Founder and President Paul Watson vowed to continue the group’s mission at the Cape Cross Seal Reserve, a major tourist attraction. Watson heads the breakaway Greenpeace group that adopts a confrontational, aggressive approach to eco-conservation. Namibia is the only country in the southern hemisphere that still permits seal clubbing, with about 90,000 being killed each year.
