Nics is spotted in a herd of about twenty individuals off the south shore between the communities of L’Isle-Verte and Le Bic. The herd consists of both adults and young and we count at least two newborns. Nics is swimming in tight formation with several other large belugas. Judging by their size, it seems that they are all adult males. Amongst them, we also recognize DL0218, one of Nics’ regular companions. Although in summer males spend most of their time away from females, they are occasionally seen in their company (between 20 and 25% of the time). Why this is the case remains a mystery!
