My article published on : Summer 2007 with the Group for Research and Education on Marine Mammals (SOS Grand Bleu - 2008)
The association S.O.S Grand Bleu (France) had asked me to write an article about my work during the summer of 2007, which is what I did.
I traveled to Quebec, along the St. Lawrence River, to study the acoustics of belugas (Delphinapterus leucas), to photograph and understand whales, and to help and get to know the Groupe de Recherche et d?Etude des Mammifères Marins (GREMM) in Tadoussac.
Analysis and synthesis of a study conducted between Tadoussac, Grandes-Bergeronnes and Les Escoumins
The St. Lawrence River and the mouth of the Saguenay River are a favorable place to meet whales. For years they have chosen to come and feed and fatten up before leaving to migrate in winter.
My stay in Mauritius and Rodrigues lasted two months and a few days. Upon my return to France, I wanted to share my experience and my adventure with marine mammals with the members of S.O.S Grand Bleu.
Paul Spong was a zoopsychiatrist. He started his practice at the Vancouver Aquarium in Canada, taking care of a female orca: Skana. He became interested in her behavior and, year after year, Skana showed extraordinary intelligence and sociability.
I am writing to you from Hanson Island, a place far from civilization, in British Columbia (Canada) where Paul Pong and his family have lived since 1972, between Vancouver Island and the Canadian continent, surrounded by snow-covered peaks and century-old trees (there is a thousand-year-old tree!).
