On 2 March, two new home-produced documentaries, Travelling with White Whales and Tagging, will be screened at the Darwin Museum’s cinema.
The documentary Travelling with White Whales was shot from a quadcopter in Chukotka. Tagging is based on research carried out in the summer of 2016 on Shokalsky Island in the Kara Sea where scientists managed to attach satellite-linked tags to a white whale and a ringed seal and track their sea routes. The expedition was organised by the Marine Mammal Council.
As part of this event, visitors to the museum are also invited to meet the filmmakers and Marine Mammal Council experts and ask them questions about life in the Arctic and the latest methods used to observe animals.
Travelling with White Whales will be screened for the first time.
Tagging was first screened last January during Russia’s Primeval Nature festival, organised by the Russian Geographical Society.
