Orca Morgan's life in captivity

18-11-2021

In June 2010, a young orca is found swimming alone, lost along the Dutch coast. A former Dutch State Secretary for Economic Affairs and Agriculture decides to export Morgan to Loro Parque, an animal park on the Canary Islands of Spain, with daily orca shows as one of its most popular attractions.

Statement of Loro Parque:
The Dutch State Council ‘Raad van State’ stated in 2019 that the transfer of Morgan was completely legal and that they did not object to either her breeding or participation in educational presentations that were already in place at Loro Parque. Also the Spanish Cites rejected all the claims of the Free Morgan Foundation.
