No decision yet on the release of killer whale Morgan

Following the latest round in the ongoing court battle to release Morgan the orca back in to the wild, a Dutch court has ruled that Morgan will remain in captivity for at least another six weeks whilst a final decision on her release is considered.

Morgan has been held captive since she was taken from the Wadden sea in June 2010. She was malnourished and was transferred to the Dolfinarium Harderwijk, near Amsterdam on the agreement that she was to be released back to the ocean once her condition improved.

Sadly, The Dutch dolphinarium nursed her back to health, but refused to release her back into the wild. Animal welfare groups, including WDC, have called for Morgan to be rehabilitated and released, but Morgan was eventually sent to Loro Parque, Spain, where she has now become part of the daily orca shows performing tricks for tourists.
