Animal rights protesters have been fighting to get Miami’s most famous killer whale released from captivity for decades.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration may be about to grant them their wish.
Lolita, the oldest killer whale in captivity, sparks passionate debate from both sides.
Animal advocates rallied on Saturday to demand the release of the orca from the Miami Seaquarium, a Florida attraction that showcases the highly trained animal to bring in tourists.
Hundreds showed up for the Miracle March in Miami in anticipation of the federal agency’s decision expected later this month on whether to classify the whale under a group of endangered species.
Experts argue the whale will never survive in the ocean.
