Management of the Bering-Chukchi-Beaufort population of bowhead whale is the responsibility of Fisheries and Oceans Canada. The Species at Risk Act (SARA, Section 65) requires the competent minister to prepare management plans for species listed as Special this population of bowhead whale was originally placed on Schedule 2 of the Act, the management plan is due within 5 . The Cook Inlet beluga whales are already endangered, having steadily declined to a population of only in last year’s survey, from an estimate of about a thousand 30 years ago. Individual groups of beluga whales are isolated and don’t breed with others or leave their home, “so if this population goes extinct, no one else will come in. Polar bears were observed in and around the southern Beaufort Sea during the fall as part of an annual aerial survey to collect information on bowhead whale migration routes.

Surveys were based in Barrow, Alaska, and Deadhorse, Alaska, and targeted the northeastern and southcentral Chukchi and western Beaufort seas, between 67°N and 72°N latitude.
