lila_avatara Lolita has been added to the list of endangered species! The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced today to remove the clause that exempted captive cetaceans from being included under the ESA. This opens the door for people to sue the Miami Seaquarium for harassment of an endangered species (her illegally sized tank & being forced to perform daily to the public etc.) All in all, she is one step closer to freedom! #bornfree #savelolita 4w

lila_avatara In honor of Lolita, this is an image of her wild relatives from the Southern Resident orca population (taken on my trip to the San Juan Islands this past summer). This is who she'd be swimming along side + many others if she had never been wrongfully kidnapped from her family 44 years ago. Today, a march is taking place that will catalyze all efforts to return this born free survivor back to her home waters. Seeing killer whales in the wild is an experience that will take your breath away. Seeing killer whales in captivity will never compare. For a being with the second largest brain in the world it is simply an atrocity that humans have captured, controlled & confined these creatures to a pitiful existence all in the name of $. I've learned so much over the past two years about killer whales, read astounding stories that dictate the level of their intelligence, the extent of compassion & emotion they exhibit toward each other & even towards humans in some cases. After watching documentaries & seeing their live behavior I find myself more and more entranced by these animals & the depth of their souls. So thankful to live close enough to visit them in their natural habitat. Will find a way to make a difference in fighting for their survival (as their #'s have been in decline due to pollution, sonic blasting in the area, & a major threat in their food supply by damming & overfishing). Not to mention they suffered a huge hit to their population when people came in & stole them from the wild years back. I know all of my followers are smart enough to never support captivity ️.

lila_avatara Right now, thousands of people are standing together in the largest protest for a captive orca in history! Today is the Miracle March for Lolita, the sole living survivor of over 40 orca that were stolen for a life of captivity during the 1960-1970 captures in the Pacific Northwest. She hasn't had another orca companion in 35 years since Hugo (another wild caught killer whale) died of an aneurysm by repeatedly ramming his head against the tank. For decades, Lolita has been forced to perform tricks daily under the guise of "education" at the Miami Seaquarium. She often floats lifelessly in her illegally small sized enclosure that when vertical, her tail fluke touches the bottom. For whatever reason (corporate bribing & corrupt bullshit), the USDA continues to grant permits to the amusement park despite the violation of the living standards set forth under the Animal Welfare Act. Fortunately, countless people & agencies like the Orca Network are relentlessly fighting for her retirement. A sea sanctuary in her home waters is currently awaiting Lolita's arrival which will reunite her with the natural rhythms of the ocean as well as the chances of reuniting her back with her family. We know that members of her original pod are still living in the Puget Sound area, including her mother L25 Ocean Sun. Believe it or not, but orca have stronger social bonds than people..staying within their family units for life! If Lolita was to see her mother again, the chances of her survival back into the wild increase exponentially (which wasn't the case for Keiko or Free Willy who had no one to return to as his family was slaughtered at the time of his capture). This Miracle March hopes to set a precedent for the immediate recognition of Lolita to be added under the list of endangered species (Her wild counterparts are already among those on the list). If granted, she is well on her way towards freedom. Lolita has a wild heart that can not be broken! Thank you to all the accounts that continue to spread awareness on this issue! #freelolita @freetokitae @boycottseaworld_ @fightingforwhales @where_orcas_are_free @wilddtail @seaslaverysucks @loveforcetaceans @ripseaworld 1mon

lila_avatara Why use makeup full of toxic chemicals that are routinely tested on rabbits, mice, monkeys, cats & dogs (to the point of an excruciating death), when you can easily support companies such as @gabrielcosmetic & their sister line Zuzu~ offering all the same beauty products #crueltyfree, #vegan & #glutenfree! Picked these up 40% off at Wholefoods. Sephora now carries a vegan line called 'Bite' (safe enough to eat) as well. If the stuff you're currently using is not advertised or labeled as cruelty free (usually there's an image of a bunny printed somewhere)..than you can guarantee animals died at the hands of making it. I'm speaking to you MAC, Maybelline/L'Oreal & Revlon. Here's a link to a long list of companies that currently test on animals & should be boycotted http://www.mediapeta.com/peta/PDF/companiesdotest.pdf 2mon
  •   gabrielcosmetic Love the support for our #crueltyfree products! 2mon
  •   terimiyahira Bite beauty uses Carmine in 99% of their products so they unfortunately aren't vegan but they are cruelty free and technically all natural I personally don't like using ingredients made from bugs so I have to resist their pretty colors!! Love Gabriel cosmetics/Zuzu luxe, I'll have to see if my whole foods has them on sale, thank u! 2mon
  •   lila_avatara @terimiyahira thanks for the info on Bite, the sales person misinformed me! 2mon
  •   terimiyahira @lila_avatara Np! I always have to read ingredients list no matter what the sales ppl tell me 2mon
