The toughest time I’ve had in my life is when I was grieving my father’s death. I couldn’t let go either. It’s a harrowing passage and maybe we will all experience it at some point. Clearly, humans aren’t the only species that experiences it. I wrote about Tahlequah, also known as J35, the southern resident orca who has been carrying her dead calf for 10 days (maybe more by this point) in yesterday’s Sunday @nytimes. (Link in bio) But we need to do more than grieve along with her—these whales are critically endangered for many man-made reasons, and if we care enough to save them the time to act is right now.
