There have been a number of different organizations who have studied, protected and lobbied on behalf of Luna.
LunaLive (2005 and 2006) is a scientific research project dedicated to the study of Luna. The project consists of a number of independent researchers, in partnership with NGOs and the Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nations, who share a desire to see Luna remain safe, free from captivity, and ultimately, reunited and swimming with his family. The LunaLive researchers, located all around the globe, listen 24x7 to the sounds of Luna's underwater territory in order to study Luna's vocal behavior.
Tsux'iit Guardians (2004-2005) Efforts to relocate Luna with his family pod have been contentious, and the subject of much news. MMFN studied and protected Luna in the fall of 2004 and the summer of 2005.
Luna Research Project (2005) This project was conducted with the approval of the Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nation, and during March-May 2005 with a Scientific Licence from the DFO. It collected behavioural and acoustic data that relate to Luna's "normal" daily life, i.e. outside the busy summer boating season.

Luna Stewardship (2003) The Marine Mammal Monitoring Program (M3) worked together with the Friday Harbour Whale Museum's Soundwatch Program and Strait Watch of Johnstone Strait, on the Luna Stewardship Project. They kept Luna away from boats in 2003.
