I’ve never heard of this place but I must go there
Cetacean researchers off the coast of Russia have recently crossed paths with a pure white orca, who has been appropriately nicknamed Iceberg. Iceberg was first spotted in 2010, and this is the second official sighting since then. Judging by his size, Iceberg is probably in his early twenties.
A team hopes to go out and find Iceberg’s pod in the coming month, so that he can be studied more extensively. It is unknown if Iceberg is a true albino, or suffers from a medical condition (similar to that of Chimo from the Vancouver Aquarium). By researching this rare white whale, biologists hope to engage others in the importance of marine animal conservation - not just for Iceberg’s family, but other orcas and sea creatures.
