Last week an orca calf was found wandering alone. When it was first found the government prohibited interference or intervention of the calf despite expert opinions that the calf could be rehabilitated if given appropriate help.

But a petition circulated and government granted on Friday that experts could go in and try to help.

Updates on the situation can be found at the Orca Research Trust’s Facebook page.
