120710 - Arctic Ecology - Churchill Manitoba - Cape Merry - Steve

GPS: 58.78556, -94.20150
Cape Merry
Cape Merry is located at the estuary of the Churchill River where it meets Hudson Bay. Historically the region has been used importantly for activities ranging from the fur trade to rivalry to exploration to find the Northwest Passage. During the summer when the area is ice free, it is common to see many Beluga whales surfacing near shore. Here there appears to be some in the centre of the photo. The rippling water is an indicator that one either just surfaced or is about to. Also, the Lichen growing on the rocks can be a good indicator of when certain areas became isolated from the sea. Orange Star Lichen occur first as they are the youngest at about 500 years of age. The green Lichen are the next youngest at about 1500 years old. T
