In yet another example of the dramatic effects of climate change, retreating Arctic sea ice is forcing massive herds of walruses ashore. During this move to land, calves and yearlings are especially threatened because they are easily trampled by bigger walruses.
World Wildlife Fund has been active in raising awareness of this terrible situation. The following video shows an estimated 10,000 walruses gathered in Point Lay, Alaska.
