NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration) Fisheries are exploring and taking action to save J50, and are even considering a plan to capture her as a last attempt to save her.

The public has a stake in the J50 response and the recovery of Southern Resident killer whales and NOAA wants to know what people in the region think about this effort, and the potential steps that can be taken. NOAA will hold a public meeting Saturday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m. in Friday Harbor at Friday Harbor High School to hear the public’s views.

Biologists are mobilized and responding to an emaciated and ailing three year-old killer whale J50 who appears lethargic at times with periods of activity, including feeding. Scientists observing her agree that she is in poor condition and may not survive.
