Light a candle for Lolita/Tokitae

The death of the orca known as Lolita at Miami Seaquarium on 18 August was a cause for deep sadness for us all at Dolphinaria-Free Europe and many of our member organisations who have, over the years, been campaigning for her not to end her life in a tank.  Sadly this was the case, she was never given the chance to retire to her home waters.

Our member Marine Connection, has been involved in the campaign with colleagues over the years and is asking everyone to light a candle in memory of this amazing orca on Sunday 27 August when an event will take place in Friday Harbour, San Juan Island.
