Expert Board

The group of experts supporting the case for Morgan’s freedom have more than 100 years worth of combined experience working with orca. They have joined the Free Morgan Foundation expert board because they agree that Morgan is a suitable candidate for release, and along with celebrity supporters, believe that Morgan deserves a chance for freedom.
