Underdog Entertainment is proud to announce that it has produced a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for the Free Morgan Foundation entitled “Free Morgan” to raise awareness of the plight of Morgan the orca, held captive in a marine park in Spain.

Morgan, a female orca calf, was found alone and malnourished off the coast of the Netherlands. She was captured and sent to a dolfinarium so they could administer medical health care and prepare for reintroduction back into her natural habitat.  However, she was sold a marine park in the Canary Islands, where unfortunately she is being abused by the other orcas at the park.

The Free Morgan Foundation was formed and has been fighting for Morgan’s freedom.  The foundation, which includes the top orca scientists in the world, has come forward with a rehabilitation plan, stating the Morgan is a suitable candidate for release back into the wild.  Please visit www.FreeMorgan.org for more information.
