Cape Fur Seals Colony, Cape Cross, Namibia

Cape Cross is one of two main sites in Namibia (the other is in L├╝deritz) where seals are culled, partly for selling their hides and partly for protecting the fish stock. The economic impact of seals on the fish resources is controversial: While a government-initiated study found that seal colonies consume more fish than the entire fishing industry can catch, animal protection society Seal Alert South Africa estimated less than 0.3% losses to commercial fisheries.
