During summer beluga migrate north in the Arctic. When we came into the estuary we first saw white lines far away and thought it was the waves, after a while, we realized that it was thousands of belugas all around us. Beluga lives in a pod, in the shallow waters of the estuaries 1–3 m deep), they spend summer rubbing their old skin on gravels and sand. It can happen that they get stuck ashore, struggling until the next tide.

I believe these images allow us to observe and document their behaviors from a new angle and approach, revealing the animals in their entirety as well as in a wider habitat and landscape, in a way not before possible, a new way of learning about the white northern part of our planet. It is more than time to act and I want my photo to help conservation to create more Marine Conservation Area.
