Welcome to our ?Ship?s Log? for Lancaster 2011: Arctic Whale Survey, a month-long scientific expedition to study one of the greatest whale migrations in the world. From the deck of a 45-foot refitted trawler, expedition members will observe narwhal, belugas and bowhead whales ? the first time on record that a boat this size has attempted this journey so early in the spring. During the month-long voyage from Greenland, two scientists and an Inuk hunter will be part of a team collecting important new data about Arctic whales and seabirds.
