Brown Fur Seals are common on the Namibian coast. There are about 300000 or more individuals living in large colonies. During the last years was heated discussion about hunting the seals and the methods they are forced to bread on the coast.
These photos are made during an excursion on the Cape Cross reservation some years ago. It is stunning place, with seals up to the horizon. Not on the photos are the noises and the smell, it was very loud and reeked of old fish, rotten meat and large predators.
