Teams of people swiftly divide the cuts into different piles. A strip from the middle of the whale is saved as the crew share. From that point forward to the head is saved for the other crews volunteering to help. Depending on the amount of people helping, the crew's final share for their families may be as small as 6 square inches. "Nothing gets wasted," says AEWC (Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission) president Eugene Brower.Locations:Alaska-Arctic-Arctic Coastal Plain-Barrow (Alaska)-North America-United States of AmericaDate:9 Oct, 2011Credit:© Rose Sjölander / 70°Maximum size:5379px X 3587pxRestrictions:Ok for Greenpeace use and for approved external Greenpeace campaign related use.

Shell's proposed offshore drill site is in the path of the bowhead whale's migration route. Many Inupiat hunters are concerned about Shell's lack of spill response capabilities if licenses are granted to drill offshore in the Arctic's Beaufort and Chukchi seasGreenpeace is campaigning for a global sanctuary to be declared around the uninhabited area of the North Pole to save the Arctic from attempts by oil companies to exploit the region’s resources for short term profit.
