This month (12/15) Shedd Aquarium’s baby Beluga calf, Nunavik, turns one year old! A healthy, happy and playful little of 450 lbs., it’s hard to believe that Nunavik almost did not survive his first day. Complications with the birth were overcome by Shedd’s outstanding veterinary staff. Today Nunavik loves nothing more than mimicing the antics of mom and enrichment time with Shedd aquarists.
