    Early in the morning we set out to encounter belugas. At the mouth of the Saguenay, we spot a herd of a dozen or so individuals composed of adults and young. After an hour of observations and photo-ID work, we lose sight of all the individuals. The belugas dive and vanish below the surface, making our job all the more challenging. Seeing their white backs in the distance, we decide to go ply the waters off Île Rouge. Great choice! We manage to take several photos of a white adult with a calf. Back at the research station, we scan through the photos taken and recognize Nomi! However, at the present time we cannot confirm whether or not the calf is hers.
