Bowhead Whales (50) More files... by Flip Nicklin
In the frigid waters off of Baffin Island in Canada's Northwest Territories researchers float in small kayaks and use submerged ROVs to observe the giant mammals. The local Inuits prepare for their subsistance hunting which allows them to harvest a handful of whales each year for consumption. In small seal-skin boats they use harpoons to kill the animals and then pull them ashore to flense and share the vitamin-rich muktuk with the community.Text by Flip Nicklin.
