Ric O'Barry recounts his time working with orca at the Miami Seaquarium: "Hugo and I were both quite young in 1969 when this photo was taken. He was the very first killer whale in captivity in the eastern United States. We both worked for Miami Seaquarium. I was his trainer. I survived that experience, Hugo did not. I have returned to the Seaquarium every Sunday whenever I'm in Miami to protest and bring attention to Lolita and Hugo. Lolita does not have to die in that tiny substandard tank like Hugo did. She can be returned to her home range to retire in peace and comfort. If only the greedy bastards who exploit her had a heart."
