New York Daily News reports, "Inukjuak Mayor Petah Inukpuk said late Wednesday the village will do everything it can to prolong the whales’ lives as national and international efforts mobilize to try and find a way to save the killer whales, also known as orcas.
"We have decided to give aid as much as possible so that those killer whales have a better chance of surviving," Inukpuk said, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
"The local people will be taking out the blocks of ice around the whales (on Thursday). They will also be cutting the ice into blocks to enlarge the (open) water."
