Thomas Ponce is a 13 year old advocate (and all around awesome young individual) from Casselberry FL. He is the Founder of Lobby For Animals, and an animal advocate, citizen lobbyist, and a Vegan. He has been active in animal rights since he was about 4 years old and is passionate and committed to the work he does. He is currently working on legislation SB540 and HB 449 to ban the sale, distribution and trade of shark fins and shark fin products in the state of Florida. He is also a supporter of the Floridian’s Clean Water Declaration to try and protect the waterways in our state.
He believes in speaking out against cruelty, to all living beings, as well as speaking out on the damage that is being done to our environment. He is a firm believer that raising awareness and educating people is key to seeing real change in our world. By exposing the truth and giving people the tools necessary to speak up, positive change can happen.
