HOW DOES THIS MAKE ME LAUGH EVERY FUCKING YEAR!?
This is Morgan. In June 2010 she was taken from the wild. She was extremely underweight and a Dutch marine park got a permit to rescue her on the condition she was released back into the ocean as soon as possible.
Morgan was not released. Instead she was put on show for the public only weeks after arriving to the marine park. Because she’s the only wild caught orca in the last 25 years she’s vital to the captive orca breeding program because of the increasing inbreeding that’s going on.
Like most other captive orcas Morgan grinds her teeth on the edge of the tank because of stress, frustration and boredom.
Morgan is now captive at Loro Parque in Spain where she has to perform several shows on a daily basis. She is continually attacked, bullied and harassed by the other whales there. She is also subjected to excessive sexual pressure by the adult male who she is often locked into the same tank with. Morgan is only a pree-teen and not yet ready for mating or being pregnant. Yet nothing is done by Loro Parque or Seaworld (all orcas at Loro Parque belong to Seaworld) to stop the abuse.

White Heterosexuals in Love
Coming to theatres next spring, a love story that is vaguely forbidden between two kind of sarcastic, innocent cisgender people who grew up in middle class american families.
Based on a book featuring White People Almost Kissing
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.
