More Walrus Haulouts in Alaska Due to Lack of Arctic Sea Ice

I have previously noted reports of large walrus haulouts onto land due to the lack of Arctic sea ice, and now there are additional reports.  You can read more about it in this summary here.  The original report came from this source here.

More information on radio-tracking of walrus populations can be found on the US Geological Survey Alaska Science Center page.

A short 2-page FAQ on the science behind the walrus haulouts can be seen here.
