Lulu (L-53) was named in 1983 during a contest in Victoria, B.C. to give names to all the whales in L Pod. This contest was part of a campaign to stop a Canadian permit which would have allowed capture of orcas for public display. Partly as a result of this effort, these whales are now protected from further capture in both the U.S. and Canada. Learn more about Lulu (L-53), her playfulness, her family and her other behaviors recorded by those who loved her.
