Morgan’s loss is Loro Parque’s gain. Sadly, the Dutch High Courts DENIED Morgan her freedom, once again. This is unfair to her. A beautiful young orca, whose life was never suppose to be subjected to being imprisoned. Prisoned amongst other orcas, who constantly bang her, rake their teeth on her flesh, and where a sexual mature male constantly sexually harrasses her. She’s not ready to breed, yet she will be and probably soon. Her bloodline is fresh…for now.
All the work that Dr. Ingrid Visser, and countless others, went into to help her, gone. All we can do is support her and the others, as well as Morgan as best as we can. Because at least they fought for her, they tried so hard. We can just say Thank-you, and that our hearts break along with theirs and Morgan’s.
RIGHT IN THE CHILDHOOD
I WAS NOT READY FOR THAT.
THAT CAME WITH NO WARNING WHATSOEVER.
A rare encounter with a pod of 20+ Type C orcas off Eden.
