Or Blanc is spotted in a herd of some fifty adults off the coast of Anse à Pierrot (Pierrot cove) in the Saguenay Fjord. Slowly and in single file, the animals work their way downstream toward the St. Lawrence Estuary. Or Blanc is swimming in the company of eight belugas, all large males, including two of his most faithful companions: DL0204 and GraCY. At the same time as we carry out a photo study, we send out a drone for a flyover. The images are striking. These aerial images are used to estimate the belugas’ size, a new piece of information that we can add to their individual datasheets.
