Support the petition to demand Lolita the orca be transported to a sea sanctuary

  1. Lolita is a Killer Whale who was stolen from her family pod in the wild in 1970, in a horrific attack that left five whales dead and seven captured and sold off. She was sold to the Miami Seaquarium, where she has lived for over fifty years. Originally, Lolita had a mating partner there, an Orca called Hugo, who lasted for ten years before succumbing to his depression, which had caused him to engage in dangerous behaviours like repeatedly hitting his head against the walls of his enclosure, which sadly led to his death of a brain aneurysm in 1980. 

Lolita now lives in a 20-foot-deep and 35-foot-wide concrete pool, which she shares with a few dolphins. Lolita herself is 21-feet-long. How can anybody think this is acceptable? The guidelines state that an enclosure for an animal of her size should be at least 48-feet wide. Her’s is the smallest Orca tank in North America. She has been kept prisoner for over 50 years in the equivalent of a bathtub. 

This poor orca isn’t even able to find shelter from the scorching Florida sun. Her cramped tank is completely exposed with nowhere to hide.

She’s forced to float listlessly or swim in small, endless circles. These wild, majestic creatures should be free to swim hundreds of miles each day and dive thousands of feet below the surface in their native waters.

Just like humans, animals deserve to both live and die with dignity.

Please, sign this petition to demand that The Dolphin Company transport Lolita to a sea sanctuary while she is healthy enough to be transported!
