THE WHALE STEWARDSHIP PROJECT a not-for-profit whale research, protection and education initiative.

Since 1998, the specialized programs of WSP have focused on research and protection of beluga whales found outside their normal range. We have documented several solitary, sociable belugas who have traveled far from their northern populations in the St. Lawrence River or the Arctic, into Eastern Canada and as far south as Boston Harbor in the United States. We call these mammals “solitary” because they are almost never seen with other belugas and “sociable’” because they frequently initiate close contact with humans and boats.
