Orca Calf L-108 Named ~ Meet Coho

The votes are in and the Orca calf formerly known only as L-108 has been just been christened Coho. First seen last spring near Neah Bay the new member of the L-pod family joins Mother Ino aka L-54 and brother Indigo aka L-100.

Coho is now the youngest Orca available for adoption through the Whale Museum Orca Adoption Program. The adoption program supports and promotes stewardship of whales and the Salish Sea ecosystem through education and research. Adopters receive a handsome packet containing information, a biography and photograph of their whale and if desired email updates.


  1. COHO is so cute! And I love that quote by Minnie Pearl. I like taking the back roads there is so much to see:) Thank You for sharing your island with us:)
