“Namibia offers such a wonderful natural beauty for tourists and seals are so beautiful and harmless animal to be killed in such a cruel manner” said Leona Lewis. In Namibia seal watching tourism industry has shown a raising growth and verified a huge profit in their business. It has been exposed in a research that seal watching has shown 300% of raise as compared to seal hunting.
Seal watching is a consistent successful revenue generator. The industry also helps in boosting up hotels and restaurants services i.e. supporting in tourism. Killing of seals have specified a big danger for seal watching industry, as observed in 1990s. Seal watching and killing both of the activities are allowed in same beaches. Few of them are Wolf bay, Cape cross, and Atlas bay. Hunt season is intended to be from July to November. During this season various newborn seals are clubbed to death.
The graph of tourist view for seal watching is continuously falling down for the reason of this seal hunting. This has been a big disaster for eco—tour companies in Namibia.
Leona Lewis, being a supporter of WSPA visited to South Africa and asked Namibian Government to bring an end for seal hunting in African region.
