Nigel (L-95) was an extremely social whale and delighted whale watchers and researchers alike with his love of tail lobbing. In early 2016, researchers satellite tagged Nigel (L-95), hoping to learn more about where L Pod travels when they are not in the San Juans. About five weeks later, Nigel (L-95)'s body washed up on shore. Necropsy results suggest that a fungal infection found near the site of the tag may have contributed to his death.
