Supporters of Lolita's Retirement

Letter from Sir Elton John

To whom it may concern:

I 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 ago.

Sir Elton John
4th May, 1999
