Live Chat: Walrus Season Wrap Up!

The “Summer of Blubber” has ended on Round Island, home of the Walrus Cam, and Walrus Wardens Ben Histand and Ryan Morrill are joining us Wednesday, August 19th at 12pm PT to wrap up the season!

The two staff members of Alaska Department of Fish and Game were stationed on the remote walrus habitat all summer, and were our guides over the island’s treacherous terrain, sharing their knowledge of the beach bumming behemoths. Ask Ben and Ryan your questions about their research, the ecology of Round Island, and of course the lives of walruses, who are still beaching there but will soon depart.

Join us at the Walrus Cam and post your questions in the comments section below the player to participate. See you then!
