Pacific Walrus Faces Dire Future

This is surely what the Very Worried Walrus is worried about!

A sobering press release today from the Center for Biological Diversity:

A new federal report today finds there’s a 40-percent chance that the Pacific walrus, a species imperiled by loss of sea ice due to global warming, will be on a pathway to extinction by the end of the century.

Global warming, regardless of your political position on the issue, or whether it represents a (geologic) short-term change or a long term shift in the planet’s climate, is a serious threat to all cold climate large animals, particularly our beloved Walrus and the polar bear.

Here’s a link to the complete document.

I need to see these animals in the wild before it’s too late, and I need to make sure I take my son with me.
