We’re off the coast of Les Bergeronnes. Brad is in a herd numbering some 150 belugas. The majority are white adults grouped in bands of 4 to 8 individuals.
These large gatherings are short-lived in nature, and consist essentially of males. They are often observed in the downriver sector of the beluga’s summer range, namely between Tadoussac and Les Escoumins. After a few hours, these expansive herds separate into smaller groups.
