Narwhals, or unicorns of the sea, aren’t just cool looking they are also expert researchers. A group of scientists  have attached sensors to narwhals that record ocean depths and temperatures. This narwhal information is transmitted once the whale surfaces, helping scientists  learn about how climate change is affecting the Arctic.
