Free Morgan the Orca - in conversation with Jean-Michel Cousteau and Dr. Ingrid Visser

Free Morgan the Orca - in conversation with Jean-Michel Cousteau and Dr. Ingrid Visser

In June 2010 a lone female orca calf was captured from the Wadden Sea, off the northwest coast of the Netherlands, under a rehabilitation and release permit. She was emaciated and dehydrated. The Dolfinarium Harderwijk took this orca, whom they named Morgan, to their facilities in order to administer medical health care. They weren’t allowed to display her to the public and she was to be prepared for reintroduction back into her natural habitat. Unfortunately, this isn’t what happened.

Morgan currently languishes in Loro Parque, a privately owned entertainment park in the Canary Islands. She is used in shows and is abused by the other orca at the park. Yet, there is strong evidence that illustrates that Morgan is a suitable candidate for release back into the wild

Morgan, and all the other captives must be released to ocean sanctuaries where they can be rehabilitated and eventually released to their ocean homes.

Morgan doit retrouver la mer, son élément famille, ses amis, les vagues, les poissons vivants à chasser. Ce merveilleux animal n'a rien à faire dans un bassin pour amuser les momes. FREEDOM FOR ALL THE CETACEANS

La liberté n'a pas de celle de Morgan ? victime d'un enlèvement, arraché à sa famille, peut on ignorer un tel acte et la souffrance que ressent Morgan ? Sa tristesse, ils lui volent sa vie, si rien ne change elle mourra empoisonné par le clore et dans la tristesse et sans vie social pour le profit d'un parc; pour quelques curieux qui pour la plus part l'aurons oublié l'heure suivante.
Nous avons aucun droit sur les animaux, Ils sont ni objet, ni accessoire, nous sommes en 2012, sommes nous capable d'accepter et de respecter la différence ? Il est temps que l’esclavage cesse, Liberté pour Morgan !!

I think Morgan deserves to go back home, among her family and pod. Harderwijck Dofnarium, Loro Parque and all these kinds of aquatic circuses are just commercial enterprises making money with cetacean slaves.
