Malik 2

Malik was a 3 year old female orca who was born at Marineland Canada on April 21, 1996. Her mother was Nootka 5 and her father was Kandu 7. She passed away on March 4, 2000.

Malik was born at the park's King Waldorf Theatre. When she got a little older, she may have spent time at the warehouse, which was an indoor pool where Marineland housed animals when they needed more space or when the animals were new to the park. A new killer whale tank, known as Friendship Cove, was built and opened in 1998. Malik and some of the other whales were moved to the new tank once it was completed.

Malik was born with a weakened immune system and had health problems throughout her life. Her mother attacked her at times, which is sometimes done out of instinct to end the calf's suffering. This resulted in them being separated at times. Malik was placed with Kandu 7 for companionship when this occurred, and Kandu did very well with her. Sadly, Malik's immune system failed and she passed away on March 4, just before her fourth birthday.
