On Friday, April 1st Miami and London UNITED to rally against Lolita the orca’s cruel captors. Miami Seaquarium kidnapped Lolita from her family when she was just 4 years old. She has been living at Miami Seaquarium ever since, in a tank so small it violates Animal Welfare Act regulations.
Coordinated protests were held on Lolita’s behalf at Miami Seaquarium and Arle Captial in London. Arle Capital Investments have a direct link in the chain which keeps Lolita captive at Miami Seaquarium.
Palace Entertainments, owners of Miami Seaquarium and Lolita, is the US operating subsidiary of Parques Reunidos – a European based company. They are owned by Candover, a private equity fund which is managed by London-based Arle Capital Investments.
We will be using this rally to urge Miami Seaquarium and Arle Capital to allow Lolita to retire to a safe sanctuary to live out the remainder of her years and live as an orca truly should – FREE.
