VICTOIRE POUR LES ORQUES EN CALIFORNIE

MEESSAGE RECU DE PETA:
 PLUS JAMAIS D' ORQUES CAPTIFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today, California became the first state to ban the breeding of captive orcas—ensuring that future generations will not endure the deprivation, stress, and frustration of being trapped inside a tiny concrete tank. Thanks to Assemblymember Richard Bloom, who introduced the California Orca Protection Act, state legislators learned how orcas suffer and die prematurely in captivity, and today, Gov. Jerry Brown signed this important bill into law.

The California Orca Protection Act prevents all California marine parks from breeding orcas for captivity and ensures that SeaWorld can't reverse its decision to stop its sordid orca-breeding program moving forward. This monumental achievement follows the admission by SeaWorld's CEO that the company stopped breeding orcas because "the data and trends showed it was either a SeaWorld without whales or a world without SeaWorld"—as well as last year's California Coastal Commission ruling that SeaWorld San Diego could not build new tanks if it continued to breed orcas.

This is a huge win for orcas. Thousands of you responded to PETA's action alert asking you to contact government officials and speak up for orcas kept inside tiny concrete tanks in California, and this victory could not have been achieved without your support.

As PETA celebrates this historic move, we encourage you to take the next step and urge federal legislators to support the Orca Responsibility and Care Advancement (ORCA) Act, which would ban the breeding of captive orcas throughout the U.S.

'Til the tanks are empty,
