Dr. Martin Nweeia, an ELOKA collaborator, works directly with Inuit elders and scientists alike to discover the purpose and function of the narwhal tusk. This combined research is providing a more complete picture of the narwhal as a species, including the anatomy, function, and behavior of these relatively obscure marine mammals.
