We are at the mouth of the Saguenay, near Pointe Rouge. We recognize Walter and Pascolio in a herd of some thirty individuals composed of adults, young and one calf. Animals are scattered and are diving for long periods. We have no chance to successfully place a transmitter on any of them.
Was this the last observation of Walter? We haven’t spotted him again since 2002. Did he die? Or has he escaped researchers’ detection all this time? One thing for sure is that his story remains a precious source of information for our knowledge of this fragile population.
