The summer of 2016 – our 32nd season at sea with the belugas – was once again rich in encounters and surprises. Sightings include at least seven observations of Blanche, each time with a young dark gray individual swimming nearby. We suspect that this is her calf born in 2014.
September 13, 2016: Blanche is swimming in the company of some thirty individuals who are heading up the Saguenay Fjord. This herd consists of females accompanied by juveniles and one newborn. The animals are dynamic and are all moving in the same direction without stopping. A group of six adult males seems to be following the herd of females. After a while, they end up leaving the herd to return to the mouth of the Fjord while the females continue onward to Baie Sainte-Marguerite, their usual terminus in the Saguenay.
