Free Morgan the orca - in conversation with scientist Lara Pozzato

Meet scientist Lara Pozzato from the Free Morgan Support Group, who are currently trying to help a wild orca, who is at an oceanarium in the Netherlands, where he is supposed to be nursed back to help and then re-released into the wild, to not become a victim of a system that would perhaps rather keep him in captivity and have the orca perform tricks.

Very interesting and informative piece.
