New walrus tagging research sheds light on reproductive failure

More details are coming out about the reproductive failure of Walruses in the Chukchi Sea last fall. A few of the animals were tracked by satellite tags as the sea ice pulled back farther than anyone had ever seen before. Those tags tell just a small part of the story of how the female Walruses tried to find food and care for their young.
