Scientific Proof Lolita (Tokitae) a Captive Orca Mourned The Loss Of Hugo Her Tank mate

February 25, 2011

Here is access to a scientific study conducted on Lolita the orca whale housed at the Miami Seaquarium and her former tank mate Hugo.

The study also goes into further information of a study conducted on Lolita after Hugo died. It is very interesting reading, which also gives us a glimpse into past history and the relationship between Lolita and Hugo.

The study is on

    Let’s get Miami Dade County Public Schools to stop taking field trips there to “learn”. The Counties’ Marine Science Academies should be teaching how to help wildlife, NOT try and get our kids excited to see a huge whale in a bowl doing tricks for food. This is the opposite of what I want my son learning about the whales… We live in Miami, FL and this is where we take field trips?!?! To look at these creatures in a bowl, when there is SO much to go observe naturally all around us! Perhaps not the killer whales but FL is overflowing with better lessons to learn about marine life. Put the Wild back in Wildlife!
