When we discuss sea ice here at NWF, we’re usually talking about polar bears. But this month, the annual loss of sea ice in the Arctic is affecting another marine mammal: walruses.

Bull walruses rest on an ice floating along the northern coast of Spitsbergen and the Svalbard Archipelago in Svalbard, Norway. We will have a gallery of Steve Kazlowski's walrus photos on the Telegraph site later today.
