The Prince Shoal Lighthouse

  • Whales and their babies

    Adult beluga with its calf.

    The bond between young toothed whales and their mother is very strong. In belugas, it can last until the young calf reaches sexual maturity. This is a crucial learning period.

    The calf grows quickly thanks to its mother’s rich milk. A newborn blue whale gains 80 kg a day, leaving his mother, once weaned, seven months later and 17 tons heavier!
