Support The Proposal For Lolita's Retirement!
Petition Background (Preamble):
During the capture, four whales were killed, and seven young whales were captured. One of the seven whales was named "Tokitae", which is Chinook for "Beautiful Day". She is now known as Lolita, and for 30 years she has lived at Miami Seaquarium in the oldest and smallest tank in the country.
Her cousin, Hugo, used to share a tank with her, but he died from a brain hemorrhage after bashing his head against the walls of his tank. Lolita has been alone ever since.
Proposal Draft: http://www.orcanetwork.org/captivity/2007proposaldraft.html
We, the undersigned, support the proposal draft to release Lolita, where her pod in Puget Sound still waits for her return.
