Phoque du Groenland • code : PGR-002
Miscou Island, N.B. • St-Lawrence Golf
© Mario Cyr

Chaque printemps, la vaste banquise au large du Labrador et du golfe du Saint-Laurent se peuple d'innombrables phoques du Groenland femelles qui y donnent habituellement naissance à un seul petit (les jumeaux sont rares). Ces nouveau-nés, appelés blanchons, faisaient jusqu'à ces derniers temps l'objet d'une chasse annuelle, qui était pratiquée bien avant l'arrivée de Jacques Cartier.

En raison du réchauffement climatique et du bouleversement de cet habitat, les populations d'ours blanc sont globalement en déclin et l'espèce est considérée comme en danger. On estime que la population d'ours blancs du monde compterait entre 20 000 et 25 000 individus.

Sur les pattes antérieures, les mâles ont des poils plus longs qui grandissent en longueur jusqu'à l'âge de 14 ans. On suppose que cela est une forme d'attrait pour les femelles, à la manière de la crinière du lion.

Une caractéristique intéressante de sa fourrure est qu'elle absorbe les rayons violets et ultraviolets, c'est pourquoi elle a souvent des reflets jaunâtres.
