* from Howard Garrett, Orca Network
On August 8th 2017, the 47 year anniversary of Lolita’s capture, we held a protest march and hand-delivered 7,191 letters for Lolita to Palace Entertainment’s corporate office. We are still accepting letters to be delivered in the future, so please continue to collect signatures and spread the word. Thank you!
Your tax-deductible contribution will help the Origami Whales Project continue to raise awareness through campaigns, exhibit and outreach, educating and empowering children and adults, who all are invited to participate in our large scale public environmental art projects.
