Cape Cross by enohla Cape Cross by enohla
There's a place at the heart of the Skeleton Coast of Namibia called Cape Cross. 80,000+ cape fur seals live there year-round. Unfortunately, some Africans take part in the inhumane practice of "seal culling", where they club seals for their fur and to eliminate them as a threat to the fishing industry. Also, during birthing season, many of the pups get separated from their mothers or become very sick. It's quite a sad sight to see many of them suffering. However, these little guys look healthy; I hope they're happy and swimming somewhere in the Atlantic right now.

Have been to the colony myself about 10 years ago. The Skeleton Coast (and Namibia in general) is a stunningly beautiful place! I grew up in SA.
