TPA Client Success: Oakland Zoo Elephant Protection Legislation Stampedes Into Law

TPA is proud to announce that Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 96 (Atkins) into law, which will help protect elephants and other animals from abuse. Co-sponsored by the Oakland Zoo (a long-time TPA client) and the Humane Society, AB 96 will now prohibit the importation or sale of ivory and rhinoceros horns in California.

TPA extends congratulations to the Oakland Zoo and the Humane Society on this significant legislative achievement, as well as props to TPA Senior Director Niccolo De Luca and TPA Associate Alex Gibbs for their advocacy efforts in support of the bill.

And, of course, we extend thanks to Governor Brown for his support and signature.
