The scientific literature has not identified if distinct calving grounds and calving seasons exist for endangered Cook Inlet beluga whales, as they do with other beluga populations. Specific calving grounds or seasonal calving periods for Cook Inlet beluga whales have not been designated because births in the wild have not been previously documented.
