Each summer, as the sea ice recedes, more than 57,000 beluga whales return to the estuaries along stunning western Hudson Bay in Manitoba, but the whales need protection from potential risks like the impact of oil spills or traffic-related noise that threaten to move in through the Port of Churchill.
