What You Can Do

TAKE ACTION - WRITE NOW!

Please take a moment to voice your opinion about the killing of whales. Start and/or continue your letter-writing campaign. It is important that you write often to remind those in a position of power that the killing of whales is not acceptable in the 21st Century.

Letter-writing tips:

  • Write legibly. Handwritten letters are good/effective, but they must be readable.
  • Include a return address at the top of your letter.
  • The first sentence of your letter should state exactly what you want.
  • If you are within the politician's constituency area, mention this.
  • Keep the focus of your letter on one issue (stopping the killing of whales).
  • If you can, personalize the letter to show the depth of your concern.
  • Be courteous, but to the point.
  • Be clear, stating exactly what is wanted from the politician.
  • Ask for a written response that states their position on the issue.
  • Add a thank-you for his/her time and/or efforts on the issue.
  • Keep the letter to one page.
  • Letters sent by snail mail are the most effective as politicians are inundated with e-mails, but feel free to contact them by whatever method you can
