We aim to promote a harmonious relationship between humans and whales through scientific research and public engagement.
We use novel and trusted methods to monitor the interactions between human activity and whale populations.
We share our research and passion for whales through a variety of online and in-person platforms.
By informing policy and the public through our work, we aim to translate our research into conservation action.
The majority of our research is conducted in Iceland, but we are spreading our work to the UK and Svalbard.
Current projects include assessing whale-watching impacts, acoustic monitoring, whale distribution, changes during Covid-19 and investigating vessel strikes & entanglement.
