Lolita's Legion
Source: [email protected]

Lolita's Legion was formed about 4 years ago by a group of 50 third grade students, who wanted to do something good. They chose, after studying a lot of information, to assist in any way they could to help free Lolita, an orca, held in captivity at the Miami Seaquarium in Miami Florida. Since the founding of their organization, Lolita's Legion has grown, via the internet, to over 40 schools and classrooms worldwide. Children as young as kindergarten and as old as University students have now joined the fight.

The members of Lolita's Legion do not raise money nor ask for funds. They instead try to spread the word of Lolita's plight. They write letters to their lawmakers, local administrators, mayors, and of course to the Miami Seaquarium, urging them to free Lolita.

We invite all school aged children and teachers to join us. We ask nothing more than your pledge to write letters. Not just one letter, but write often to the owner of Lolita and to lawmakers. We ask only that you notify us of any correspondence you receive from anyone, so we can share it. We ask for a mailing address for your group, so we can send you a certificate of membership and we ask for a valid email address to keep you posted on developments surrounding Lolita and other pertinent whale issues, such as Keiko's (Free Willy) progress.

We invite you to visit our web page, sign our guest book and contact us if you are interested in joining our pod.


We look forward to hearing from you all.
