Marine biologist, diver and expedition sailor, Andreas B Heide uses his boat S.V. BARBA as a platform and tool for ocean conservation. He's best known for sharing his extraordinary encounters while diving with whales in Arctic waters and has received global attention for his work using whales as ocean ambassadors. In the summer of 2022, he led a collaborative four-month scientific and communications expedition, Arctic Sense, over 3,000 nautical miles between Norway and the UK via the polar Atlantic researching, documenting and sharing untold stories about the impacts of climate change and pollution on marine life in the region.
