How to Identify?
The only completely white whale. Size, color, melon-shaped head and lack of dorsal fin are distinctive characteristics.
We combine physical characterics and behavior patterns with location and seasonal aspects to identify species.
Where & When to Spot?
I saw this whale species on both trips to Tadoussac.
With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.
Anything to add, to correct?
