Saddened to see the stricken orcas in Quebec, trapped under a huge stretch of ice near a remote fishing village.
A dozen killer whales are trapped and urgently need icebreakers to be scrambled in order to get them to safety.
You can see the orcas desperately trying to breathe through a hole in the ice in the video above.
Fisheries and Oceans Canada are sending a team to evaluate the situation today - we urge them to act decisively and save these beautiful creatures before it is too late.
You can sign a petition calling for the authorities to act now to save the orcas.
