Race to save the critically endangered orca: Biologists plan to capture starving 3-year-old from the same pod where a grieving mother carried her dead calf for weeks

FILE - In this Aug. 7, 2018, file photo, Southern Resident killer whale J50 and her mother, J16, swim off the west coast of Vancouver Island near Port Renfrew, B.C. Nearly two months after an international team of experts began taking extraordinary measures to save the young sick orca, the critically endangered whale is skinnier than ever. Now NOAA Fisheries and its partners are weighing whether to intervene further to help the orca known as J50. (Brian Gisborne/Fisheries and Oceans Canada via AP, file)

Officials said they will only intervene and rescue the orca, which is currently swimming off the coast of Canada in the Pacific Northwest, if she becomes stranded or separated from the rest of the group.

A grieving orca was spotted off the coast of Washington state Thursday, carrying her dead calf through the Pacific Ocean for the 17th day in a journey that has astonished and devastated much of the world.

Tahlequah, as the mother has come to be called, gave birth on July 25 in what should have been a happy milestone for her long-suffering clan.
