Video of the Week: Beautiful belugas frolic in the High Arctic

Posted by in Wildlife on Friday, November 27, 2015

Every summer, hundreds of beluga whales gather in the shallow waters of Cunningham Inlet off Nunavut's Somerset Island to breed, socialize and feast on the abundant marine life.

The opportunity to see these majestic creatures up close attracts dozens of visitors to the Weber family's Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge on Somerset every year, but for those who can't make it to the Arctic, there's this stunning film by Nansen Weber.

Using a drone-mounted camera, Weber was able to capture unprecedented views of not just the belugas, but the unique geography of the High Arctic.

"As Canadians, the Arctic is our backyard - one that so few know about; a hidden gem," he said. "I believe that all Canadians should know more about this unique environment."
