Abstract:

Reconnaissance aerial surveys were conducted along the fast-ice edge from Stokes Point to Baillie Islands to monitor white whale movement to the Mackenzie estuary. Once the estuary was accessible to whales, all available areas within the estuary were examined by systematic aerial surveys. Survey timing, coverage, and procedures were similar to those of previous programs for monitoring white whales; an attempt was made to survey all estuary sub-areas within a 30-h period. The field season extended from June 23 through July 25. Sightings of white whale neonates and information on social and feeding behaviours were extracted from data collected during previous programs, and the results from 1976 through 1985 were tabulated, mapped, and summarized.
