Today's Cool Site...

Hunting whales

Many find the practice of whale hunting distasteful. After all, many whale populations are threatened. That's thanks to commercial whaling.

There are groups that rely on whale hunting for subsistence, though. For example, Eskimo communities have a strong tradition of whaling.

I'll withhold my opinion on subsistence hunting. I'm sure you have your opinions on the matter.

Instead, I'd like to take you inside a whale hunt. Jonathan Harris spent nine days with a family of Inupiat Eskimos in 2007.

Jonathan was able to witness one of their traditional whale hunts. As you would expect, he documented it rigorously. In all, he took more than 3,000 photographs!

At today's Cool Site, you can view these photographs. They're presented in a variety of unique ways. The presentation helps tell the story of the whale hunt.

I don't know what's more impressive. The arrangement of the photos offers new insight into the whaling narrative. And many of the photos are simply breathtaking.

No matter what your opinion on whaling, I'm sure you'll find the story fascinating! This is a great way to learn about something many of us will never see.
