Miami Seaquarium

Lolita, also known as Tokitae, is an old female orca living in Maimi Seaquarium. She was captured along with other members of her family on August 8th, 1970 in Puget Sound.

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

Now is the time for Lolita to retire. She has worked endlessly for 30 years, and she won't live much longer.

We, the undersigned, support the proposal draft to release Lolita, where her pod in Puget Sound still waits for her return.
