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.
