Large tusks, bristly whiskers and blubbery hides—what’s not to love about walruses? Add in the fact that walruses love to eat and call loudly to their friends and family, and these pinnipeds are downright relatable.
Putting our admiration aside—walruses’ distinctive features help them survive and thrive in their Arctic habitat. Their 4-inch-thick blubber keeps them toasty in the frigid Arctic waters and their whiskers help them feel along the ocean floor for food.
Walruses are truly unlike any other ocean animal. But walruses—and many other Arctic animals—are at risk. These incredible animals are threatened by melting sea ice and pollution, which could lead to declines in their population.
There is no time to waste to protect walruses and other Arctic animals.
Help us make the most impact with a monthly gift to Ocean Conservancy. You’ll become an Ocean Partner and your consistent support will keep pressing work in the Arctic and beyond moving forward. Not only that, but this month you’ll help us unlock an extra $5K in funding for this important work.
Ocean Partners commit to automated monthly donations, which allows Ocean Conservancy to plan ahead and immediately respond to ocean emergencies when they occur. Your ongoing monthly gift will help ensure our ocean is protected for the wildlife and communities that depend on it, no matter what.
Plus, this month, our board of directors and generous donors are providing an extra reason to join us: they’re donating an additional $50 for each new monthly donor.
We’re working from the coast to the courthouse to ensure delicate ocean ecosystems like the Arctic are protected. We couldn’t do our work without the help of generous supporters like YOU.
