Campaign to Free Orca Brings in Celebrities!

Posted by Candace on March 17, 2008

The Campaign to free Lolita also known as Tokitae is back and Gaining Steam. Lolita from the L-26 sub pod,was captured when she was only 6 years old on August 8, 1970 at Penn Cove Puget sound on the coast of Washington. She is the last orca of 45 members captured between 1965 and 1973. She is currently living at The Miami Sea Aquarium where she has been alone for over 30 years.

Actor Raul Julia Levy has gather Celebrities and Producers. Some on the list include Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, 50 cent, Lindsay Lohan, Janet Jackson and Jean Claude van damme. The Campaign has also just got a new sponsor The Earth Island Institute who also helped free Keiko, The whale from Free Willy. Lolita has been in that smallest tank in the country for over 30 years and is the last surviving female of her pod in Captivity. Raul has plans to start a concert and get her story on Oprah! “This is just the beginning” – Raul Julia Levy

I was so excited Hearing about the campaign coming back, This is not the first attempt to save her. Arthur Hertz the owner of the MSQ was offered 1 million dollars and turned it down, In the movie Slave to Entertainment it is said, Mr Hertz has more pictures of Lolita in his office than of his family. I had almost lost hope until I ran across the new articles. This is a different time and there is finally a new plan in place. Arguements that Lolita will not survive in the wild can be thrown out the window,for more information on the feasabilty of Lolita return go to http://www.orcanetwork.org
