Day 3 of our #100SealsForTime campaign brought us a new kind of entanglement: a soccer shirt from Cameroon!
We have no idea where this seal picked it up, but he seemed a bit upset when we took it away from him.
It was an exciting day, we managed 4 rescues in total, we are happy with the progress of our campaign to catch and release 100 seals in the month of May between Walvis Bay, Swakopmund and hopefully Cape Cross.
So far, we see rather more than less entanglement, a clear sign that ocean rubbish and plastic pollution are increasing, even during times of Corona Lock Down. There is no sign of sustainability or ocean awareness in Namibian Waters.
This Animal Rescue was a lot of fun because the seal wasn’t hurt (yet) and because he looked very funny in his soccer shirt, but the nylon fabric would not biodegrade any time soon. It does not belong in our ocean. Please do not throw your rubbish in the ocean. Please do not leave clothing on the beach. Please always be mindful, you do not know where your garbage ends up, it could cause horrible animal cruelty.
