We’re sailing aboard the Bleuvet, off the coast of Île Verte. Around us are swimming fifteen belugas, including both adults and juveniles. Most of the time, we recognize belugas only once we’re back on land and in the lab, as encounters are short-lived and we have to take note of several elements. However, this time we manage to identify Aquarelle and Élisabeth directly from the boat! Aquarelle is resting; more precisely, she’s doing what we call “logging”. Other familiar individuals in the group – Amalena, Blanchon, DL1932 and DL584 – are more active and are swimming in tight formation.
