We’re working in the Saguenay, near Cap Blanc. We’re in the presence of a herd of some forty belugas. The glare on the water somewhat complicates our surveys. We’ve spotted no less than three calves in the herd. The female Blanche is present, as is Or Blanc. Around twenty belugas, adults and young alike, form a loosely-knit group around which smaller groups of a few individuals gravitate. In front of us are six large males that we are trying to biopsy, to no avail.
