Understanding the Ecology of Pacific Walrus Populations to Support Department of Interior Regulatory Agencies and Provide Information to Native Subsistence Communities

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Using radio tagging to investigate changes in Pacific walrus movements, breeding and hunting in response to climate change and human influence on habitat. Climate change and its impact on Pacific walruses are of great concern. Female walruses use sea ice to rest and nurse their young in the Bering and Chukchi Seas. They rely on the close proximity of sea ice to the continental shelf where...
