Our continued commitment at WSP is to behavioural research and protection of solitary, sociable beluga whales. We are pleased to collaborate with MARS (Marine Mammal Response Society), which responds to all reports of stranded and injured marine mammals in the Maritimes. The Liverpool whale is not injured but WSP has concerns that his persistent “residence” close to people and boats poses increased risk.

The WSP monitored the whale during the taking of the biopsy sample and the made observations of the whale for several hours afterwards and was able to document the whale’s interaction with paddle boarders. WSP is now launching a significant education initiative to help the community understand and deal with the prolonged presence of the whale in Liverpool Bay.
