Walrus chums cozy up on Round Island

Walrus Season Wrap Up Chat: Live from Round Island

“Walrus Wardens” Ben Histand and Ryan Morrill will soon depart Alaska’s Round Island, home of the Summer of Blubber and the Walrus Cams. Before they go, they’ll join us Wednesday August 12th at 2pm PT for a live chat to wrap up the season!

Update: While the walruses will continue beaching for some time, the live cams will come down this week when the Round Island Crew leaves. So there’s no better time than today to ask them your questions about their research, the ecology of Round Island, and of course the lives of walruses.

The two staff members of Alaska Department of Fish and Game have been stationed on the remote walrus habitat all summer, and have been our guides over the island’s treacherous terrain, sharing their knowledge of the beach bumming behemoths. Join them at the Walrus Cam and post your questions in the comments section below the player to participate. See you then!
