Dear Senator Gorton,

     I am writing to ask for your help in overturning the permit granted to the Makah Indians to kill 5 gray whales a year. The U.S. administration should not have involved itself in violating U.S. and international law, just to support what it momentarily saw as its obligation to Indian treaty rights. The treaty was nullified by the international moratorium on whaling established by the International Whaling Commission.

     We must not allow the United States to become known as a whaling nation,we must set the standards for the rest of the world. We cannot allow the near destruction of these magnificent creatures to happen again, they must be conserved. We do not know how many or what other stresses may be upon them,whether they are environmental or threats by humans.
Sincerely,_________________
