Morgan was taken from the wild. She belongs in the ocean and currently faces a lifetime in captivity unless we can all join together to speak as one voice, and allow her to return to her ocean home. Stop the captivity industry using 'rescue' as an excuse to keep whales like Morgan, there is no reason she cannot be free.
We, the undersigned, are writing to express concern for the young orca, Morgan, who was captured and brought to the Harderwijk Dolfinarium in June, 2010.
Morgan should be released back to the wild. A concrete tank is no place for a wild animal who can swim up to 100 km per day. Captive orcas do not live as long as they do in the wild. They can develop physical and psychological problems in captivity. For example, two trainers were killed by captive orcas during the winter of 2009-2010 at Loro Parque in Tenerife and at Seaworld in Orlando. Orcas do not belong in captivity.
Please do not let the reputation of the Netherlands be blemished by a decision to confine Morgan indefinitely. Please ensure that you make a decision consistent with Dutch nature policy, which claims to ensure that nature is preserved for future generations.
Many international orca experts are ready to help assist with a relocation plan. Please ensure that Morgan is returned to the ocean, where she belongs.
Thank you for taking the time to read our letter of concern.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
