Cetaceans and other marine life are a critical link in our ecological chain and when that link gets weak the entire chain will break. The whale and seal meat that is being consumed by the indigenous tribes of Alaska is full of toxic mercury and other harmful substances. Studies have proven that ingestion of these toxins will cause long term damage to the human body not just for the person consuming it but for future children of the people eating it. Please take a stand not just for the marine life but for your constituents health. Please look at the facts and do what is right.
