I saw Lolita at MSQ in the 1970s when she and I were both in our teens. Back then people neither knew that much about SRKWs nor the ill effects of captivity on cetaceans but now we know or should know.
However the MSQ does not incorporate findings from any contemporary scientific research on SRKWs or cetacean captivity in its so-called education program. This is evident if you compare its current program with that from 40 years ago. As a result the MSQ has betrayed the public trust. The mis-education campaign (which is designed to protect its commercial interests in her) is the very reason why the government must intervene and revoke the MSQ’s ability to continue “holding” her in the public trust.
