Protecting James Bay, Belugas & More
August brought exciting news for marine conservation in James Bay! First, the Mushkegowuk Council and the federal government announced they were working together on a feasibility study for a national marine conservation area in western James Bay and southwestern Hudson Bay. At the same time, a 17-day research expedition gathered much-needed data on these waters. And in western Hudson Bay, our ongoing beluga studies revealed new insights.
