GREMM’s research boat – The Bleuvet – is positioned off the coast of Île Rouge. We observe a herd of about 30 belugas consisting of adults, juveniles and one newborn. Not far from them are also four seals. Serena is swimming in the company of four other belugas, including a young gray. Elsewhere in the herd we recognize the female Pacalou and the male GraCy. Surprise! We see feces appear on the surface. Even if for most people, any type of excrement is disgusting, for researchers, this is a source of valuable data. Is it from Serena? We can’t say for sure.
