Seal entanglement is a massive problem on Namibia's coastline. A very active fishing industry and 1.5 million Cape Fur Seal are competing for marine resources. Seals are naturally playful and curious, and they often end up playing with plastic rubbish and ocean pollution such as fishing line, fishing net, packing strap, plastic bags or any other item that made its way into the ocean.

Once entangled, seals cannot help themselves. As they grow, the entanglement will tighten around the seal's neck, flipper or mouth, leading inevitably to its gruesome death. All seal entanglements are caused by human negligence. In 2019, Naude Dreyer and his associates freed more than 150 seals in the area around Pelican Point.

Ocean Conservation Namibia (OCN) is an initiative started by Naude and Katja Dreyer in Walvis Bay, Namibia. It is their mission to catch, disentangle and to release as many seals as possible. In 2020 and 2021, Ocean Conservation Namibia has caught and released over 1200 seals, many more will need help.

OCN relies entirely on private donations. There is no government funding available in Namibia, and all expenses for rescues have to be covered through generous people such as you. With your help and ongoing support, we can continue to patrol our beaches and find seals in need, before they get seriously injured.

  • This is very little, but I only have my disability pension to live on, or I would give so much more, I’m sorry! You do such an amazing job, but it should never have been necessary in the first place. It is hard to believe in human kindness much of the time, but watching your dedication allows me to believe a little more and gives me hope for our planet. Many many thanks for all you do.
