Cape Fur Seals

During our work we have seen more and more direct impacts humans on endemic Cape fur seals sea birds, especially the Endangered Cape cormorant. The animals are being injured and killed in plastic waste – often related to industry, as well as facing starvation (2020 and 2021 seasons!). Entangled animals face a slow and painful death. Cormorant chicks are born into nests filled with cable ties and fishing line – facing death within a few hours of hatching.  We are working to document and scale and location of these issues to find and target solutions.  Support this work directly through  GoFUNDme
