Support the ORCA Act (HR4019)

Posted: 30 January 2016. Updated: 1 February 2016

The Orca Responsibility and Care Advancement Act of 2015 (HR4019) seeks to prohibit the import, export, and taking of orcas and orca products, and to prohibit breeding for exhibition. Orcas swim over 100 miles each day, easily diving to depths over 600feet – they belong in the wild, not some tiny tank. Help ensure the ORCA Act helps keep them in the wild.

In the US, support the ORCA Act – HR4019:
