The 2021 expedition sets off

The second research expedition under the Narwhal Project has set off from Arkhangelsk. From the Mikhail Somov it will traverse the waters of the White Sea, the Barents Sea and the Kara Sea to reach the Franz Josef Land archipelago, where scientists are planning on tracking down groups of “sea unicorns” (narwhals), continuing their research, and taking photos and videos. The team also plan on encountering belugas and even maybe bowhead whales, on the way.
