WE NEED TO KNOW MORE

Increasing understanding and knowledge about cetacean is one of IceWhale’s main tasks. The association therefore encourages members to organize or contribute to research. Many members have created a platform for marine biologists and university students conducting both short and long term studies. The main emphasis has been on photo identification but also dive time and habitat studies. In recent years the focus has though shifted towards assessing the impacts whale watching vessels may be having on the wildlife and ways to minimize it.
