Завершился первый из трёх круизов по маршруту Шпицберген- ЗФИ-Шпицберген. Территорию "Русской Арктики" посетили 96 человек из США, Новой Зеландии, Австралии, Швейцарии, ЮАР и др. Повстречали моржей, китов, белух, медведей. Совершили высадки на острова и зодиачные круизы.

Tusks and mustaches galore. These #walruses in #franzjosefland can weigh up to 1.5 tons and live an average of 40 years. Most of the time these snorting marine mammals are very social but come mating season, they become aggressive and territorial. #arctic #poseidonexpeditions Photo credit: Michael Hames @apexexpeditions #wildlifephotography

Тем временем продолжаем тестить Иридиум360 РокСТАР и за нашими передвижениями можно наблюдать в режиме реального времени. В следующем круизе планируем отправку точек более регулярно, дабы путь прокладывался точнее. На рейдах тоже будем менять ситуацию в лучшую сторону :-) Копируйте ссылку в браузер и путешествуйте вместе с нами! http://demo.iridium360.ru/journey/73005748

Иногда на Земле Франца-Иосифа светит Солнце. Это настоящий праздник. Было бы правильно объявлять такие дни выходными, вываливать на улицу всей гурьбой, снимать шапки и жарить шашлыки. Обниматься и снимать всяческие дружные селфи. Откупоривать заначки, воздавать языческим богам и балдеть всеми доступными способами. Но вся беда в том, что пока достаёшь мясо, ищешь штопор и натягиваешь портки, архипелаг снова принимает своё серое туманное обличие.

P.S.: На горизонте купол ледника. Большая часть территории закрыта такими кругленькими ледяными массивами.

Bowhead whales! For me this was one of the greatest whale encounters ever. Being solely an Arctic species and in some places very difficult to observe, due to the fact they are still being hunted, I could only ever dream about seeing a Bowhead whale in the wild. In the waters around Franz Josef Land they are not hunted and are more easily approached. To see up to 10 animals feed a few hundred metres from the ship, and that during several encounters on 3 consecutive expeditions, truly was a whale dream come true for me!
And they are such amazing creatures!!! One of just three year-round native Arctic whale species, Bowhead whales are famous for their massive bow-shaped heads, designed perfectly for getting through thick sea ice to breathe. Bowheads are able to use their large reinforced skulls and powerful bodies to break through ice 20 cm thick. Inuit hunters in Alaska have reported whales surfacing through 60 cm of ice.
Records suggest that they may live up to 200 years!! Like the other ice whales (narwhal and beluga), bowheads have no dorsal fin, enabling them to move easily under the sea ice. They have a very thick layer of blubber (up to 40-50 cm), which serves primarily as an energy store in the icy waters.

Hunted by commercial whalers until the last century for whale oil and baleen, bowhead whales are today still recovering slowly from the brink of extinction. Inuit in Canada, Greenland and Alaska are still allowed a limited subsistence hunt for bowhead whales however.

Modern threats include sea ice retreat and changes to food web dynamics due to rapid climate change and ocean acidification. Bowheads are also affected by increased development such as oil and gas exploration, commercial shipping, and fishing.

A healthy, curious bear on the sea ice in the high Russian Arctic.
Plus a Northern fulmar up above 😉

Polar bears rely on sea ice to hunt their preferred prey, seals. As we reach the lowest extent of sea ice in recorded history due to human induced climate change, we need to realize that the success of this polar ecosystem depends on us controlling our personal and collective footprint.

as winter begins to set in and after three months on the ship it's time for me to say goodbye to the frozen waters of the arctic for this season. working in the polar regions is always an incredible and eye-opening experience and these last few months have been no exception; i was privileged to see parts of this planet and wildlife that very few ever get an opportunity to witness. to everyone i met and worked with along the way, from my colleagues on the ship to the small communities of inuit in east greenland, it has been a pleasure. i now set my sights to a slightly warmer iceland and faroe islands over the next few weeks while also squeezing in some much needed rest // #arctic #svalbard #franzjosefland #greenland #iceland #faroeislands

Mysterious, ball-shaped stones are scattered all over Champ Island in the Franz Josef Land archipelago. These perfectly round rocks appear as if they grew right out of the land. The stones vary in size from a few centimeters to a few meters in diameter.
You can see these stones on High Arctic Expeditions through the Franz Josef Land archipelago. #poseidonexpeditions #arctic #franzjosefland #polarcruise #wanderlust

Вести с полей!
Вот такой гость заходил к нашим госинспекторам, которые живут и работают на базе "Омега" (о. Земля Александры, ЗФИ). По словам Алексея Молоковского, который и сфотографировал пушистого красавца, снега на ЗФИ еще много, но тает с каждым днем все сильнее. Скоро лето!

Ready to pull? Partnership is key on an expedition. I am blessed to always have been with great individuals sharing the same passion and dedication to these icy wild lands and adventures. @vincentcolliard @thomasulrichexplorer @mikehornexplorer just to mention a few of them. •

The polar regions are warming at an accelerated pace, glaciers are receding and sea ice extent is at a record low. We need to ask ourselves some serious questions. All of us can do daily things to make a difference. How do you contribute?
