Here is an example of the Bikers 4 Orcas Petition that I downloaded & printed, in order to take to family, friends & neighbours etc. 

I will add your name & email address to the petitions I have already printed

 
            FREE MORGAN                 

Morgan is a young wild orca who was found hungry & alone off the coast of the Netherlands in 2010. She was very underweight but otherwise not ill.

She was captured by a marine park who had a permit to rescue her on the condition that she was released back to the ocean as soon as she was strong enough.

However, within weeks of being rescued she was put on public display. Then, instead of being returned to her home in the ocean, she was moved from a tiny tank in the Netherlands to another tank in The Canary Islands. So now, Morgan is being kept in captivity in an “abusement park” where she has to do tricks for food and to entertain the paying crowd. Morgan will be exploited for the rest of her life if we don’t stand up for her!

Video footage of her first few weeks in the Canaries show her being rammed and bitten by the other orcas and now because of this she has ‘rake marks’ all along her body ~ She’s being bullied. When not with the other orcas she was spending a lot of time alone in a shallow side pool.


Orca experts and researchers know where Morgans family are. They live in the ocean near the islands and fjords of Northern Norway. It is a beautiful, icy wilderness where the orcas spend the winter months feeding on herring and socialising with all the other pods of orcas. Morgan should be there but, instead, she is far away from home with animals that are strangers and aggressive towards her.

Morgan can and should be returned to her family


PLEASE HELP MORGAN RETURN HOME
