Welcome to Whale Wise

Our network
current focus

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.
