2. Legislation phasing out the captivity of killer whales is finally proposed.
Whale fans the world over rejoiced to learn that the 'Orca Responsibility and Care Advancement Act' was proposed to end the captivity of killer whales. The bill will ban whales being taken from wild, as well as making breeding, importing and exporting the animals for public display illegal and ensure that orcas now at aquatic parks such as SeaWorld are the last ones to suffer this fate.
