It is a deeply needed source of information to monitor and devise solutions to the increase of noise in beluga habitat,” says Michaud. Both he and Vergara hope this research will help conservationists find new ways to nurture belugas. And that’s exactly what the fragile belugas need as they face increasing human incursions into their environment. Just recently, Michaud won a battle against a proposal to construct an oil terminal in Cacouna, Quebec, near a sensitive beluga area. Similar projects that would bring more boat traffic and noise have since been proposed, and Michaud is getting ready for a new fight.

These and other persistent organic pollutants have been found to disrupt the endocrine system of mammals, implicating them in problems associated with reproduction, development, immunity and behaviour. So it is possible that their build-up in the bodies of belugas is compromising their ability to reproduce. To get a handle on all the possible reasons, a team of researchers has created a new statistical model. “No one has yet attempted to integrate contaminants, noise and food limitation in the same model before,” says Rob Williams, a Pew Fellow in marine conservation, who is leading the effort.
