Savik Crew is one of the most productive of Barrow's 30 plus whaling
crews. The first images show some of the preparations
taken in the spring of 2011 as they prepared to hunt Bowhead
whales from the sea ice during April and May.
Then come pictures from May 13, 2011 at a whaling camp on the ice. No bowhead whales, but an assortment of other animals... in particular several polar bears including one very curious young one that repeatedly wanted to check out the camp.
