WSPA ambassador Leona Lewis is very displeased to hear the new report about the excessive hunting of seals in Namibia. According to reports, seal watching is worth 300 percent more than seal hunting and animal rights organizations are trying to have the country's government step in to bring an end to the killings for the benefit of the animals and the community.
When asked about the hunting, Leona released this statement, saying:
“No price would ever be high enough to justify the killing of these harmless animals. This country has so much natural beauty to offer tourists, why allow this brutal practice to tarnish its reputation forever?”
Agreed! It would be better for everyone, including the economy, if this beautiful creatures were just left alone!
