Rescued Walrus Calf Dies At Alaska SeaLife Center

By | August 10, 2012 - 11:16 am

One of three walrus calves rescued from the Barrow shoreline and taken to the Alaska SeaLife Center didn’t make it. The calf was pretty emaciated and died within a day of being brought in July 30. A second calf remains in critical condition, while a third is now stabilized in the Center’s critical care unit, which has a windowpane for the public to be able to look inside.
