These orcas are trapped in ice and need your help
A similar situation with whales in Alaska was the subject of a film “The Big Miracle” starring Ted Danson and Reese Witherspoon. With the help of locals, the press, and the Alaskan people (Inuets) they were able to free two grey whales. True story and wonderful solutions folks. Someone needs to get to this one soon.
There’s a pod of 18 killer whales trapped in the ice in Canada, crowded into a slowly shrinking breathing hole. They need help, but it’s hard to get near them because their thrashing throws up so many waves. Unless you’re an X-Man, preferably Cyclops, your best bet to help them is to nag the Canadian government to dispatch some assistance tout de suite.
Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans appears to be waffling on what to do about the whales, who will need an icebreaker to get free. One woman who contacted DFO on the whales’ behalf says she was told, “We don’t have a mandate to rescue marine mammals.” We’re pretty sure orcas can actually vote in Canada, so this seems like a huge mistake. If you think so too, you can contact DFO at email@example.com. Normally we’re not all breathing down your neck to call your congressperson or whatever, but look at this face:
