This stationery set was inspired by Tokitae ("Lolita"). She was taken from her family in the wild at age 4 in Penn Cove (1970). She has spent 52+ years living in a small tank. Can you imagine how horrible that would feel? You can read more about Tokitae here:
Peggy Oki (longtime activist and founder of the Origami Whales Project) continues to advocate for Tokitae. More than 2,000 'art letters' have been sent to the new CEO of Miami Seaquarium requesting that Tokitae be relocated to seaside sanctuary in the Salish Sea (her home waters)
You can help! TAKE ACTION!
Right now the SWIMS Act is on the table. This incredibly important bill would amend outdated laws and put an end to the future captivity of whales (including Orcas, Belugas, etc). PLEASE write to your state representatives, asking them to co-sponsor the SWIMS Act! Not sure where to begin? No worries at all! Peggy Oki has provided all the info plus a sample letter. Click on the buttons below to dive in and take action!
This booklet is filled with information about the Queensland and New South Wales 'shark control programs'. As you learn about the problems - you'll also learn about the suggested solutions.
