The article in The Times about the Puget Sound orca victory over California farmers noted that the farmers were represented by the Pacific Legal Foundation. [“Puget Sound orcas versus Calif. farmers: Whales win,” page one, Aug. 3.]

It should have been noted that the Pacific Legal Foundation is regularly at the forefront of legal actions that are designed to challenge federal environmental protections, including the Endangered Species Act.

It is a legal firm that is undermining our planet’s health.
