(Seattle, WA)  --  Researchers are considering a new rescue operation to help the ailing southern resident orca J50.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says it's considering a couple different approaches, including undergoing a hands-on physical examination of the whale.  Another option includes capturing J50 and taking her to a different location for a short-term rehabilitation stint.  NOAA is holding two public meetings in Washington state this weekend to hear the public's views on what should be done to help the orca.  The first meeting is scheduled for Saturday evening at Friday Harbor High School, and a second meeting is set for Sunday afternoon at the University of Washington's Haggett Hall Cascade Room.
