We aim to promote ocean harmony through research and education- by improving our understanding of whales, we can improve our relationship with them.
We use novel and exciting methods to monitor the impact of human activity on whale populations.
We share our findings with local communities and the general public, and welcome any feedback on our work.
By engaging the public with our work, we aim to translate our research into conservation action.
Whale Wise is currently working towards a sustainable whale watching industry in Skjálfandi Bay, Iceland, now and for the future. By studying the response of humpback and blue whales to whale watching encounters, we aim to design a suitable conservation plan for both whales and people.
