Walruses spotted from space adapting to climate change

Groups of walruses gathering on land are so large they’re visible from space. Unfortunately, the reason why doesn’t bode well for the animals’ future.

In recent satellite imagery captured by Planet, which operates the world’s largest pack of Earth-observing satellites, large groups of walruses can be seen crowding Earth’s coastlines, all the way from space. The image shows ambiguous, “distinctive red-brown” blobs decorating the Alaskan coastline. Previously, walruses would gather in groups of up to many thousands, called “haulouts,” on Arctic sea ice far from the shore. But with sea ice melting at rapid speeds due to climate change, they have no choice but to gather on land.
