On 25 July, Christian found a very small dead Beluga about 4 km northwest of the first above. Photo 26 July Mark Peck.


On 10 August, Doug McRae found another very small dead Beluga near the tip of Longridge. On 12 August, Mike McMurtry (OMNR) took issue samples for toxicology and DNA testing. We wondered how these three Belugas died. Photo Doug McRae.

Because Black Bears had plenty of natural food such as berries, they did not bother our camp. This bear lived on the ridge 0.5 km from camp and we saw it every day.

Also a Harbor Seal on 15 August.
