    ANNAKPOK SEEN NEAR ÎLE BLANCHE

    We observed Annakpok with some fifty other individuals on July 17, 2015. She is at the tip of Île Blanche, an island off the coast of Rivière-du-Loup known for its bird concentrations, including an important common eider colony. The herd in which Annakpok is spotted consists mostly of adults, mainly females and juveniles. She is swimming in a smaller group of three adults and two juveniles. The entire herd is dynamic and directional in its movements; in other words, individuals were en route to a fixed point, without stopping along the way. In the same herd we recognize DL0249, a beluga that we haven’t spotted in 17 years.
