Hi Scuba Divers Lovers,
 
my name is Carola and I am a member of the Scuba Diving group. I haven't had a chance to meet you in person but I am planning to join the group for a dive in October. Look forward meeting you!
 
I need your help! Please help me to support the release of the young Orca Morgan who is
currently being held in captivity in the Netherlands. She does not belong in a tank. She belongs in the ocean.
 
In late June, 2010, a young orca was seen in the Wadden Sea, off the coast of the Netherlands. The little orca appeared to be ill, so she was captured and brought to the Harderwijk Dolfinarium, a captive facility about an hour from Amsterdam. She was named Morgan. For more than a year, she has been living in a small tank at the dolphinarium. She is currently on display, where visitors can see her every afternoon – an interesting experience for visitors, but for Morgan, it’s like living in a prison.
The Dutch government permitted her capture on the basis that she would be rehabilitated and then released back to the wild.
 
On December 10, 2010, the dolphinarium announced that she would not be returned to the wild.
Morgan doesn’t belong in captivity. Anyone who cares about orcas should insist that Morgan be returned to the wild. 
 

Please help me to support the release and sign a petition (it takes one minute)

 Thanks a lot for your help.
