Time is running out for a solitary orca held at Miami Seaquarium. Lolita, also called Tokitae, was one of the first whales in a brutal roundup that captured orcas for display in marine parks between 1965 and 1973.

Kirsten Massebeau‘s insight:

Time is running out for Lolita, Tokitae. Please ask that she be listed as endangered. This is her one chance for freedom!
