Based on true events, “Lolita Loves the Ocean: The Story of a Wild Orca”, offers both children and adults a vivid insightful account of the life of Lolita or Toki, the second oldest captive orca in the world, surviving in the U.S at Miami Seaquarium, Florida. Wildlife researcher Gina Sequeira embarks readers on an intimate journey of the ways of wild orcas, and onto Lolita’s mental and physical struggle as a prisoner. Accompanied by dynamic illustrations from former San Francisco Academy of Art instructor Christopher Newhard and Sequeira, Lolita’s story may be told transparently without words. This 2018 edition also includes updates on the Souther Resident Killer Whale Population as well as current advocacy work. Most of the proceeds from this book benefit the Orca Network!
