We are preparing a series of unique scientific expeditions, deep into the sea-ice during the darkness of the polar winter, where Icewhales are supposed to reside, mate and reproduce. This way we can learn about the life of the Icewhales and their interactions with the environment. In doing so, we turn the Icewhale from a scarcely known species into a well-known Icon of the Arctic, a figurehead of sustainable conservation and development.
