It is wonderful to see an orca performing and educating the public. For this, any wild animal needs to be cared for in a humane way, with the best possible surroundings, stimulation and care. Thank you.

I just tried to submit this to the news, but it's already here, so thank you.

I came across the petition & I can't believe there are so few signatures & there's only 19 days left.
I've already signed it & shared it all over Facebook & Google+ I truly hope it gets the number of signatures needed.
But it should not need thousands of signatures for the authorities to act because it's a fact that the size of her pool is illegal. Also, her family are classed as an Endangered Species ~ It's wrong that that authorities have not already taken action
Lolita truly deserves to be retired & given the chance to be rehabilitated, released & returned back to her family
