– About Lolita
“On August 8, 1970 nearly a hundred members of the Southern Resident Killer Whale Community were herded into Penn Cove on Whidbey Island [Puget Sound]. Five whales drowned, seven young whales were stolen from their families. Only one survives today. Her name is Lolita.”
Lolita remains almost 47 years later in a small tank, ‘incarcerated’ at the Miami Seaquarium.
