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 the same fish. 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 it's 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 a Non-Profit Organisation founded 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, Ocean Conservation Namibia has caught and released over 600 seals in 2020 alone. As of April 2021, the rescuers from OCN have caught 70 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.

THANK YOU

  • It's heart breaking to know we, humans are the cause of such suffering to other animal inhabitants on this planet. I try to support OCN when I can because I personally am incapable of physically doing anything. for these seals. Thank you ONC.
