We’re busy shooting footage of underwater belugas off the coast of Île aux Basques. Solidaire is captured on film with other white adults and gray-coloured young as they swim back and forth under the boat. Belugas are gregarious and curious animals and will sometimes survey boats and other watercraft. This investigation behaviour exposes them to risks of collision. This is why those navigating the St. Lawrence are encouraged to exercise extreme caution in the presence of belugas and, if possible, to stay at a distance.
