  • Thousands of seals found dead in Namibia

    OCTOBER 24, 2020

    An estimated 7,000 Cape fur seals have been discovered dead at a breeding colony in central Namibia, scientists said on Saturday.

    Gridley estimated that between 5,000 and 7,000 female seals had miscarried young with more still being found.

    The cause of the mass die off is yet to be established but scientists suspect anything from pollutants or bacterial infection to malnutrition.
