ACTION: Twitter storm #SavetheWhalesCA
The Center for Biological Diversity asked for help spreading this message.
Twitter Storm this Friday, March 26
Urge the Committee Members to vote YES on the California Whale Entanglement Prevention Act (AB534)!
Can you join us for the Twitter Storm?
As you may have seen, Rob Bonta, the author of the California Whale Entanglement Prevention Act (AB 534) was just nominated to be CA Attorney General. Another Assemblymember may step in to carry his bill as a political favor and things will probably move pretty fast over the next week.
Regardless of who will be picking up Assemblymember Bonta’s bill, we have heard from his office that the Committee Members need to URGENTLY hear from supporters of this bill so that it makes it to Committee.
Post as a Twitter Thread on Friday:
Tweet 1: More than 280 whales were entangled in fishing gear off the West Coast – mostly off the coast of California – between 2015-2020. These entanglements INJURE and KILL endangered wildlife! #SavetheWhalesCA
Tweet 2: California is the center of tech innovation. So why is its fishing industry still using 19th Cent. gear that entangles & kills whales and sea turtles? The Committee on Water, Parks and Wildlife must vote YES on the Whale Entanglement Prevention Act (AB 534)! #SavetheWhalesCA
