Summary

Hunting the Ice Whales takes viewers on a dynamic rollercoaster ride through the Southern Ocean, following a team of scientists led by top marine mammal researcher Nick Gales, as they battle horrendous conditions to implant satellite tags and retrieve whale biopsies. In the short window of opportunity open to them, the crack team track the whales' feeding habits in the Antarctic environment and gather unprecedented data on where these great leviathans feed during the Antarctic summer, doubling their body weight.
