The oceans in the Polar Regions are known to be the most efficient in early warning detection as they are often the most highly affected by global environmental changes. One Ocean Expeditions carefully selects research partners, who execute important and relevant research projects, to travel alongside guests and conduct science while onboard our expedition cruises. These projects which take place in Antarctica, the Arctic and all places in between are exclusive to the One Ocean Expeditions program. Research may range from collecting data for critical meteorological and oceanographic studies used at an international level, to the tagging and tracking of migrant whale populations for universities and science institutions worldwide.
Drone footage collected in Antarctica gives critical insights on the behaviour of whales.
