Lolita Update #90
A new phase begins now
July 15, 2007



Lolita at work

Ever since our efforts began 12 years ago to allow Lolita (captured from L pod in 1970) to return to her home waters, we've known it was a long shot. Since Lolita is not a movie star like Keiko, we've always needed a different sort of miracle to create a credible publicity campaign to negotiate with the owner of the Miami Seaquarium for her retirement. Now it's looking like that may be starting to happen. More will follow as this new phase begins to take off.

One of the major problems all along has been that there are only a few credible researchers who are willing and able to publicly vouch for the proposition that the retirement proposal (see below) poses no real risk to Lolita at any stage of the process.

This is a general call for established scientists who will talk to the public through media in order to help make the case that a well-planned, cautious and professional transport and retirement poses no significant risk to Lolita's health or to orcas in the wild. For more background and details on the plan, please see:

Japan Dolphin Kill Protest in Seattle - Tuesday 9/25


Help Stop the Largest and Cruelest Slaughter of Dolphins in the World!

Japan Dolphin Kill Protest in Seattle - Tuesday 9/25

Click for directions to Seattle's Peaceful Protest Against Japan's Dolphin Drive Hunts and go to Save Japan Dolphins for more about the worldwide protests. We are now more than 70 NGOs strong, protesting the worlds largest dolphin slaughter at 40 Japanese embassies and consulate offices worldwide. Our message will be heard loud and clear all the way to Tokyo: STOP the DOLPHIN SLAUGHTER.

Two Taiji city councilmen have broken the Japanese code of silence and labeled meat from dolphins "toxic waste" due to its high mercury content. They have demanded dolphin meat be withdrawn from the school lunch program. This is a huge step in generating local opposition to the dolphin hunt.





Much is going on to help bring Lolita home and to inform and advocate for her and her family Please consider a tax-deductible contribution to help Orca Network continue this work by clicking HERE. Thank you!
