August 26, 2013: we’re focusing our efforts on the Saguenay given the fog and wind conditions prevailing in the Estuary. Some forty belugas, including Aquabelle, are in Baie Sainte-Marguerite. Among them are some fifteen animals, motionless at the water surface, engaging in what is known as “logging”. An hour later, the group, which has grown to include young and six calves, starts to become very active. Pectoral fins are emerging from the water; the animals are moving about briskly. Just before leaving the sector, we successfully take a biopsy sample from one of the belugas.
