More information:

A Fin Whale feeding amongst icebergs off Illulisat on Greenland Like many species of whale they are spending longer in arctic waters as the sea ice retreats Ilulissat is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the Jacobshavn Glacier or Sermeq Kujalleq which is the largest glacier outside Antarctica The glacier drains 7 of the Greenland ice sheet and produces enough water from calving icebergs in one day to provide New York with water for 1 year Climate change has meant the glacier has speeded up and is now one of the fastest glaciers in the world at up to 40 metres per day and is also receeding rapidly
