Forty
years is a long time to be stuck in a bathtub.

But
that’s reality for Lolita,
an orca who has been
imprisoned in the tiniest orca tank in North America—at
the Miami Seaquarium—since she was captured and torn away from her
family
 more than four decades
ago. She has no other orcas for companionship.

But
two of Latin America’s brightest stars have set their sights on freeing Lolita,
and they won’t stop until she has been liberada.To show the Seaquarium
that they mean business, actor and TV host Natalia Villaveces and her friend actor Patricia De León led a spirited
bilingual protest at the Seaquarium.

Natalia also released a new public
service announcement
 in
English and Spanish urging everyone to boycott attractions in which marine
mammals are held captive. “They [are] forced to swim in circles and
perform meaningless tricks for people who probably have no idea how sad and miserable
they are,”
she
said.

Please
join Natalia, Patricia, and animal advocates around the world in spreading the
message that marine-mammal parks are where happiness tanks.
