Early this morning, visibility is excellent. We’re sailing near Île aux Fraises, off the coast of Kamouraska. JP is recognized in a herd of fifteen or so individuals, consisting mostly of young juveniles that we’ve nicknamed the “teenagers”. Within the herd we are able to make out several small gray heads, which are seals. After an hour of observing, we attempt a biopsy. Bull’s eye! We’ll be able to analyze the DNA of one of JP’s companions and piece together a little more of its story.
