Florida Orca Protection Act – Social Media

Social media can be a powerful tool. Use it to encourage Florida residents to spread the word and contact their state representatives in support of the Florida Orca Protection Act (HB 1305).

We’ve provided sample language below, but feel free to personalize it and even make use of the whale emoji 🐳 to share your excitement about the #FloridaOrcaProtectionAct and #HB1305.

Orcas are highly intelligent, social animals. Orcas in captivity exhibit signs of extreme stress, psychological harm, and even premature death. After decades of criticism, SeaWorld has instated a policy ending captive breeding at their parks. Despite the company’s promise, a corporate policy is not binding and there is no accountability without a law. Let’s ensure a better life for orca whales through a more permanent solution: support the Florida Orca Protection Act (HB 1305). This bill proposes an end to captive breeding, ensuring that the orcas currently in captivity will be the last ever to suffer in confinement. The bill also ensures orcas already in captivity will not be subjected to demeaning and dangerous theatrical performances. #ALDFforOrcas #FloridaOrcaProtectionAct #FOPA #HB1305
