Empty the Tanks – Coupeville

Saturday May 11, 11:00 to 1:00

Corners of Highway 20 in Coupeville

 

Concerned citizens across the globe will gather in solidarity to bring awareness to the plight of captive whales and dolphins during this annual event, which spans over 60 event locations across 20 countries. As part of this event Orca Network and the Langley Whale Center will host a gathering in Coupeville in honor of Tokitae/Lolita.

 

Please join us at the intersections of Highway 20 in Coupeville from 11:00 to 1:00, near Penn Cove where Tokitae/Lolita was captured in 1970. She is the ONLY surviving Southern Resident orca from the capture era and we continue to work toward returning her to her home waters. Bring your enthusiasm and signs – we will also have some signs available for use. It's time to Retire Lolita!
