Morgan the Killer Whale lives a miserable life at Loro Parque. She's so unhappy, she exhibited behavior multiple times, from beaching herself
on a concrete slab to self-harming by banging her head
against the tank's metal gate, that appear she's trying to end her life. beaching herself on a concrete slab
in a possible suicide attempt. Now she's had a baby and they're both going to suffer greatly if we don't free them.Sign the petition to ask Loro Parque to do the right thing and release their captive orcas!
In the wild, female orcas can mate with whoever they like and when they have matured enough to breed safely. In captivity, that's not so. Either the park artificially inseminated her, or one of two older male orcas impregnated her. But one thing is sure: She was too you to breed safely. Rather than caring about Morgan's health and safety, the park chose to lock her in a tank with a male orca who sexually pressures her.
Now that she's had a baby, the reality is that her time in captivity may have stunted her ability to nurture. Typically orcas haves lots of chances to babysit growing up, but Morgan didn't get that chance so we don't know if she will be able to care for her baby at all. Morgan is doing everything she can to get our attention and our help. We need to come to her aid, and demand freedom for her, her baby, and the other orcas at Loro Parque immediately.
Experts believe they have found Morgan's family in the wild, which means she and her new baby could even join them! Add your name to help free Morgan.
