PLEASE KEEP YOUR DISTANCE

On Friday, 1 October 2021, a young seal came ashore on a beach between Rooiels and Pringle Bay. We ask that people keep away from it and to especially keep dogs at a distance of at least 20 metres from the seal. This animal was rehabilitated, tagged and released offshore by uShaka in the beginning of June, nearly 4 months ago. Members of the Overberg Stranding Network have been deployed to monitor the seal.

 
Overberg Stranding Network

The Overberg Stranding Network is a collaborative group of organisations that ensure as much information as possible is retrieved from every stranding, that live animals are refloated or euthanised if necessary and that carcasses are disposed of safely if they come ashore in a built-up area.

Stranding response in the Overberg area is managed by a collaborative group of organisations: CapeNature, Department of Environmental Affairs, Dyer Island Conservation Trust, Hermanus Animal Hospital 24 hr service, Mammal Research Institute Whale Unit, NSRI, Overberg District Municipality and Overstrand Municipality.

If you find a marine mammal along the coast you are urged to call the Municipality on 028 313 8000 and ask for the Environmental Management Section, or the Dyer Island Conservation Trust's rescue stranding line at 072 598 7117.
