Dear Friends of Lolita,
Lolita campaign goes international!
We're thrilled to announce that the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), based in the UK and with rescue operations worldwide, has joined the Lolita campaign!
In their words:
"The Seaquarium's refusal to place Lolita's welfare above their own economic interests has compelled WSPA to join the Orca Network and the legions of Lolita supporters around the world in calling for the orca's immediate retirement."
"Violently ripped away from her family in 1970, Lolita has been held captive at the Miami Seaquarium for over 30 years. WSPA, along with an army of Lolita supporters, believes it is time to set her free!"

This is a big boost for the campaign and signals much broader support and more active involvement in the campaign to return Lolita to her home waters and be given the chance to rejoin her family.
