Namibia's annual seal slaughter
Each year, right about now, approximately 80 000 unweaned seal pups are clubbed to death on the beaches of Namibia. It's regarded as one of the cruellest hunts on Earth and one Australian citizen profits hugely from it. We chat with South African activists Pat Dickens, founder of The Seals of Nam, and Nikki Botha who are campaigning against the slaughter. We also hear from Peter Shaughnessy of the South Australian Museum and Phil Cornelius of Animal Liberation South Australia about the proposed seal cull in South Australia's Coorong.
