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 under the threat of illegally abandoned fishing gear and other marine debris that entangle, torture and kill them.
Ocean Conservation Namibia (OCN) is a non-governmental organisation recently created in Walvis Bay, Namibia, with the primary objective to put an end to the entanglement of marine wildlife along the Namibian coast. Our modus operandi combines investigation, direct action and education in order to maximise our impact on this issue.
Our team currently consists of three dedicated activists is led by Namibian conservationist Naude Dreyer, who started rescuing seals on his own more than five years ago at Pelican Point, Walvis Bay.
We are incredibly grateful for the recent exposure we have been experiencing through our YouTube Channel. With now over 150.000 subscribers, we have been able to create massive awareness for our situation. The more support we get, the easier it will be to change the conditions for our seals. Please continue to watch and share, the power of social media is helping us to continue our work. To keep updated on our progress, please subscribe to our newsletter.
