As Arctic Ice Melts, Walruses Gather On The Coast

NatGeo: Walruses Swarm Beaches as Ice Melts

Thousands of walruses have gathered on the coast because of extreme ice melting near a Barrier Island in Alaska.

The walruses use the sea ice as a resting platform between feedings in the ocean. However, according to the World Wildlife Foundation arctic sea ice is at its 3rd lowest level in US history.

A no fly zone has been put into effect in this area because the noise from the aircraft can startle the walruses. When walruses get spooked they often stampede, which is very dangerous, especially because calves and juveniles can get crushed to death by the larger walruses.

This is not good. We hope that this ice stops melting soon!

Let's get these walruses their habitat back!
