We the undersigned public are very leery of the well known unsafe and abusive treatment of the captive cetaceans at SeaWorld, since the death of Dawn Bancheau and the documentary movie Blackfish. Public opinion is now in favor of SeaWorld either closing down or releasing their captive killer whales. There is pending legislation in two states to end the killer whale shows and their captive breeding program. Congress has unanimously voted to get USDA to revise regulations regarding conditions in which Orcas may be held. Regardless of ownership and/or business arrangement with SeaWorld, to hold the meeting at the Renaissance which is located at, and identifies itself, in name with SeaWorld is an offensive condonment by the respected board that is entrusted in protecting us. It appears as an endorsement of SeaWorld. Please dis affiliate with that venue and chose a new one that is not, in any way associated with SeaWorld. Protect the people working there by showing concern for them, as well as for the animals they keep captive. Remain a respected authoritarian body for the state of Florida.

This petition will be presented to the Florida Board of Medicine at their August 1, 2014 meeting at the Renaissance at SeaWorld hotel. It will give an effective and direct message to the members of the board, that the public does not want them to hold their meetings at that location.
