Great Lakes Now

Beluga Whales

Clip | 4m 43s

The health of the waters of the Great Lakes can be measured in many ways, but one of the most unusual is by observing the health of the small population of beluga whales that live in the estuary of the St. Lawrence River. Detroit Public Television tells the story of the belugas in the St. Lawrence, why they’re threatened, what’s being done to restore their population, and how we’re all connected.
