Causes - Animal Legal Defense Fund Lolita

 
Issue

Meet Lolita: an intelligent and sensitive orca, confined to the smallest orca tank in North America. This life means daily misery for Lolita, but big bucks for the Miami Seaquarium. And, even though her shameful living conditions clearly violate the Animal Welfare Act, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) continues to hand out AWA licenses to the Seaquarium.

Response

Animal Legal Defense Fund is doing everything it can to help return Lolita to her family. ALDF (along with PETA) is suing the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to end the exclusion of Lolita from the Endangered Species Act (ESA) of the Pacific Northwest’s Southern Resident orcas and is working to end the archaic practice of keeping these highly intelligent, wide‑ranging predators cruelly confined solely for the sake of entertainment, once and for all.
