A Beluga Bestie, Navigating with a Narwhal

A Beluga Bestie, Navigating with a Narwhal

The Group for Research and Education on Marine Mammals (GREMM) research team filmed a pod of beluga whales swimming with a narwhal.  Confirmed with drone footage, the male narwhal has been adopted by the beluga pod for years. Canadian scientists are interested to see if the narwhal will breed with a beluga to create a “narluga.”
