Welcome to Ocean Conservation Namibia!
Namibia has a precious Cape fur seal population of roughly 1.5 million individuals all along its coast. These seals are exposed to illegally abandoned fishing gear and other marine debris that entangle, torture and kill them.
Ocean Conservation Namibia (OCN) is a non-governmental organisation created in 2020 with the primary objective to help entangled seals and other marine animals along the Namibian coast. Through observation, direct action, exposure and education OCN hopes to motivate individuals all over the world to change their own behaviour towards a sustainable future.
The OCN team consists of several dedicated activists led by Namibian conservationist Naude Dreyer, who started rescuing seals more than eight years ago at Pelican Point. More than 420.000 subscribers follow OCN's rescue videos every day on Youtube. Each view, comment and share has helped to create more awareness for our seals' dire situation and the general condition of our oceans through the global reach of social media.
OCN is entirely funded by private donations from all over the world through our donation platforms GoGetFunding and Patreon and the sales of merchandise in our shop. Thank you for helping us and thank you for caring.
