Comments Off on Melting Arctic Ice Causes 35,000 Walruses to Mass on Alaskan Beach, Raising Fears of Stampede

This would put many of the animals at risk of death by trampling – especially juveniles. In response, the Federal Aviation Authority has re-routed flights, and the media, tourists and bush pilots have been asked to keep away from the site in an effort to not startle the animals. The animals are believed to have come ashore because arctic sea ice is currently at its sixth lowest level since satellite monitoring began in 1979.
