About PolarTag

PolarTag was set up as a portal aimed specifically at visitors to the polar regions (both Arctic and Antarctic) in an attempt to collect images of animal tag resightings.

Photo submittions are welcome from anyone – tourists, base staff, guides, ships crew, etc.

We will share the data that comes from your photos with collaborating scientists. After receiving a submission the entry and accompanying data will be automatically sent to a mailing list of scientists that are deploying tags according to species.
