Un béluga prisonnier au Nouveau-Brunswick

L'opération unique visant à replacer un béluga dans son milieu naturel doit se dérouler, ce jeudi, entre le Nouveau-Brunswick et le Québec.

Une fois capturé, il sera transporté à Cacouna, dans le Bas-Saint-Laurent, par camion et par avion.

Marie-Ève Muller, du Groupe de recherche et d'éducation sur les mammifères marins, a relaté jeudi soir que le béluga avait été remis à l'eau dans le fleuve près de la "pouponnière", et qu'il avait aussitôt commencé à nager.

Les déplacements du mammifère marin sont suivis à l'aide d'une balise installée sur lui.

Plusieurs organismes gouvernementaux et environnementaux ont participé au sauvetage du béluga qui était bloqué dans la rivière Nepisiguit.

Le cétacé est muni d'un dispositif permettant aux scientifiques de retrouver l'emplacement où il se trouve.

La population de bélugas dans le fleuve Saint-Laurent est en déclin depuis le début des années 2000; on estime qu'il en resterait actuellement moins de 900.

L'an dernier, pratiquement à pareille date, un nouveau-né béluga s'était échoué vivant à Rivière-du-Loup.
