01 Oct Narwhals in Scoresby Sound Like It Cold
This study examines the movements of narwhals in the Scoresby Sound. Researchers gathered data from Wildlife Computers SPOT, SPLASH, and CTD tags to attempt to integrate oceanographic profiling with diving and foraging behavior. The research found that narwhals avoided swimming into water warmer than 2°C. The study suggests that narwhals may be sensitive to temperature changes and really like where they live and eat.
