Since 1951, the Animal Welfare Institute has been dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people.

We seek better treatment of animals everywhere - in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home,
and in the wild.

Please Urge Your Rep to Cosponsor the ORCA Act - Photo by Patrick Moody

On November 16, 2015, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) introduced landmark legislation that would phase out the captivity of orcas so that their display ends with this generation. Please ask your representative to contact Rep. Adam Schiff's office and join him as a cosponsor of HR 4019. Members of the public are increasingly concerned about the welfare of captive orcas.
