I Am the Walrus

I've had the privilege of watching walrus in their natural habitat. it was a spectacular site, with hundreds of male walrus beached on a small strip of sand and gravel at the bottom of a cliff on Bristol Bay in Alaska. This place is located in Togiak National Wildlife Refuge, a place few have heard of.

Since then, I've been a walrus fan. But because of the geography of walrus, few people will ever get to see them, and climate change will make them even more elusive.

So, check this article from today's New York Times and meet the walrus.
