of Lolita's Retirement
from Sir Elton John
whom it may concern:
have been deeply moved by the efforts to free Lolita,
and wish to add my name to the campaign to return
her to her home waters, where she can hopefully reunite
with her family.
She has spent most of her life performing twice daily
in a small tank, and I wish to add my voice to those
others who are attempting to see her either freed,
or fully cared for in retirement in a sea-pen within
the waters where she was captured almost 30 years
