Over the last ten days we received transmissions from only one female walrus. This walrus moved south, from Cape Lisburne to the northern coast of Russia, between Uelen and Cape Serdtse-Kamen, similar to other tagged walruses.
In addition to the movement tracks of these walruses we mapped the OCS leased blocks (orange cubes). Sea ice data are courtesy of the U.S. National Ice Center, dated 6 October 2014 (http://www.natice.noaa.gov/index.html). Funding for this project is provided by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). Walruses were tagged in the Chukchi Sea from 1–23 June, 2014.
