Orcas are highly intelligent, social animals. Orcas in captivity exhibit signs of extreme stress, psychological harm, and even premature death. After decades of criticism, famous marine park SeaWorld has instated a policy ending captive breeding at their parks. Despite the park’s promise, the company could change hands or loosen policy. Let’s ensure a better life for orca whales through a more permanent solution: support the Florida Orca Protection Act. This bill proposes an end to captivity and captive breeding and ensures orcas already in captivity will not be subjected to demeaning performances.  #ALDFforOrcas #FloridaOrcaProtectionAct #FOPA


  • Ask @HollyRaschein to schedule a workshop for the FL Orca Protection Act. Protect Orcas. #ALDFforOrcas #FOPA
  • Company policy is easy to change. Laws aren’t. The FL Orca Protection Act would keep future orcas free from captivity. #ALDFforOrcas #FOPA
  • Orcas swim up to 140 miles a day in the wild. Tell @HollyRaschein- keep orcas free from captivity. #FloridaOrcaProtectionAct #ALDFforOrcas
  • Thank @ElectThadAltman for his support of orca protection! #FloridaOrcaProtectionAct #ALDFforOrcas
