Arctic Watch photographer Nansen Weber has filmed the Northwest Passage with the use of a drone. He grew up spending every summer exploring the Arctic. Nansen Weber is Arctic Watch’s lead and professional wildlife photographer.
This droneography video shares the magical wonders of the Northwest Passage – the beluga whales of Cunningham Inlet, the polar bears and the mesmerizing landscapes of this magical place in Canada.
I think it’s important that people know that pristine places, like this beluga place, is one of a kind in the world. It’s something that we should look into and hopefully save, because it might not be there in the future. – Nansen Weber
This drone footage was shot on the coast of Somerset Island, and displays one of the last beluga nurseries on earth. Almost two thousand beluga whales were filmed frolicking in pristine blue Arctic waters in this rare and beautiful videography shot by a drone. The playful beluga whales gather annually within the Cunningham Inlet.
