Wo die wilden Wale leben

An der Westküste der kanadischen Hudson Bay wird man Zeuge eines Aufeinandertreffens dreier ungleicher Parteien. Aus dem Flachland erheben sich gewaltige Zementsilos, in denen Getreide für die Verschiffung über den Atlantik gelagert wird. Die Matrosen der Frachter treffen hier auf die tierischen Bewohner der Subarktis wie im Hafen spazierende Eisbären oder Belugas, die sich zu hunderten im warmen Wasser der Flussmündung tummeln, um ihren Nachwuchs zu gebären. Und dabei Neugierige aus aller Welt anlocken.

Industrie. Wildnis. Tourismus.

Die ansässigen Familien leben von den Touristen, die sommers wie winters den Blick auf die weißen Säugetiere genießen möchten. Doch der Raubbau an der Natur wird vor der Arktis nicht haltmachen. Und wie üblich werden die Tiere in freier Wildbahn darunter leiden. Wir treiben in der Flussmündung, versuchen uns die Mücken vom Leib zu halten und im trüben Wasser einen Blick auf einen Beluga zu werfen, "Dancing Queen" durch den Schnorchel summend, um die neugierigen Tiere anzulocken. Vielleicht haben die Wale schon ähnliche Bedenken wie wir...

Die Bilder wurden zusammen mit dem Text der kanadischen Biologin Dr. Shoshanah Jacobs im DIVER Magazin veröffentlicht.

When the bears are away, the belugas will play

On the west coast of Canada’s Hudson an uncomfortable trio collide. There, on the rocky shores of the flattest countryside is a giant grain elevator eager to receive and ship tons of its collections around the world. But there is also the only deep water port where sailors from Nigeria can be met at the pier by polar bears. Beluga whales scratch their backs and nurse their young in the warm fresh waters of the estuary and the local people of Churchill have gathered to share these natural wonders with tourists.

Industry. Wildlife. Tourism.

Here the world is wondering how to best exploit the Arctic resources. Here the wildlife is going about their business of being wild. Here the families are proudly guiding foreigners across their lands. And here we swat at mosquitoes off of Mosquito Point trying to get a close up of a beluga as we sing Dancing Queen. An uncomfortable trio indeed!

The story, written by Canadian biologist Dr. Shoshanah Jacobs, was published in DIVER magazine.
