Nord is a 9 year old male orca who lives at the Moskvarium. In August 2013, three orcas were captured in Russia. One of these was a young male estimated to be about 5 years old. In December of 2013, Nord was moved to a temporary holding facility, along with a female named Narnia, until their new home could be built. On November 5, 2014, it was announced he had been named Nord.
In December 2014, Narnia and Nord were transferred to the new aquarium along with a new female named Naja. The three whales now perform in shows at the Moskvarium.
