TOURIST ONLINE PETITION
TO PROTECT & SAVE CAPE FUR SEALS
IN SOUTHERN AFRICA
We, the tourist, domestic or international demand that the government's of South Africa, Namibia and Angola, who under their perspective Constitutions have an obligation to promote the protection and conservation of Cape fur seals. The only species of seal breeding on the African continent and found nowhere else on earth. We, the tourist, have seen and read the Seal Alert-SA DVD titled "Tourist Guide to World of Cape Fur Seals". Therefore demand that all governments cease all commercial hunting of Cape fur seals either via clubbing, shooting, drowning, entanglement, culling, sport trophy hunting or live exports. To cease all cruelty in whatever form to this species. Furthermore, to stop all removal, shooing, banning or restricting of Cape fur seals breeding on offshore islands and to facilitate the repopulation of all extinct former seal breeding islands either via natural re-migration or physical re-introduction, which includes the islands of Robben, Dassen, Vondeling, Dyer, Possession, Mercury and all islands known as Seal Islands. To all other country's governments and Parliamentarians to follow the example set by the United States and the EU, and to therefore introduce legislation banning the import of all products derived from Cape fur seals. We also, demand that the United Nations World Heritage Committee UNESCO revoke the World Heritage status granted to Robben Island, until such time, as Cape fur seals have been re-populated or reintroduced back to this extinct former seal island, the largest offshore island in southern Africa, named after Cape fur seals by the Dutch early explorers.
Failure to do so will involve the boycott of your country as a tourist destination and any products exported by that country.
With each signature, we request each government to enter into discussions with Francois Hugo of Seal Alert-SA to increase the protection of Cape fur seals in southern Africa, now and into the future.
