The orcas in Quebec, which were recently trapped by the Hudson Bay ice are now free!!
But before the killer whales were let loose, ocean advocate Richard Branson took to his blog today to write:
"A dozen killer whales are trapped and urgently need icebreakers to be scrambled in order to get them to safety. 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."
And after the petition received 3,019 signatures, residents were gonna head out to the ocean to break the ice.
Luckily for everyone, the ice broke on its own, and the orcas were set free!!
Now that's what you call a miracle!
Peep the video (below) to watch the killer whales before the ice broke.
