We’re at the mouth of the Saguenay, heading toward Île Rouge. DL0584 is swimming in a herd of approximately sixty individuals comprising both adults and young, including two newborns. We observe two large concentrations of animals: nearest to us is a group consisting of females and young, followed by a group of adult bulls. DL0584 is in the company of a known female, Miss Frontenac, and the second-year calf of the latter.
The mouth of the Saguenay is a meeting place! Here, networks of male belugas regularly cross paths with those comprising females and young. Short-lived herds form here due to the abundance of food. Moreover, amongst the beluga herd we spot a number of seals, birds, and minke whales. That’s what we call well-stocked waters!
