PLEASE HELP! 
Morgan, a young orca found alone and in weak condition off the Dutch  Coast last June, and then nursed back to health by Dolfinarium  Harderwijk, has now been denied the chance to return to the ocean. A  decision was made by agriculture secretary Dr. Henk Bleker that Morgan  should continue to be held in a captive setting, and that moving her to a  marine theme park in the Canary Islands (Loro Park) is the next course  of action for her. News story here: http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2011/10/12/general-eu-netherlands-whale_8730225.html
Loro Park currently houses 4 SeaWorld owned orcas, raising suspicion that Morgan is simply being used as a desperately needed new breeding female for SeaWorld’s dwindling genetic diversity in its killer whale population. This is a sad and pathetic fate for a young animal like Morgan.
This comes as a huge disappointment to those fighting for Morgan’s  freedom. Previous concerns about Morgan not rejoining her family were  hushed when word broke that researches managed to identify many of the  calls Morgan makes with other wild orcas, meaning Morgan’s extended  family had been found, and therefore, clearing a major hurdle in her  release back to the wild. A young orca would likely face major  consequence on their own, so finding Morgan’s family was crucial.
