Beluga whales are found only in the Arctic and Subarctic  - Northern
Alaska, across Northern Canada, the Straits around Hudson Bay and
Greenland.  They inhabit these waters for the entire year, not leaving the
area to migrate to other areas as many other whales do.  Other full time
occupants of the Arctic are narwhals (the tusked-whales) and bowheads.
Other species spend at least part of their year in the Arctic, including
killer whales, blue whales, and sperm whales.  

Thanks for your question!  Write again anytime.
