narwhal :: unicorn of the sea

i just read the most incredible article
about these amazing and elusive whales:
it takes place on greenland's west coast.
{thank you, stephanie, for the link}

be warned, vegan friends,
the scientists work with native hunters
to learn more about narwhals
and ultimately protect them.
blubber eating is involved.

here is a video clip about the piece

be sure to click here to see more photos.

i remember this song from the limeliter's album
that was in heavy rotation when i was small:
greenland is a dreadful place,
a land that's never green.
where there's ice and snow
and the whale fishes blow,
and the daylight's seldom seen,
brave boys,
the daylight's seldom seen.
