I am the (GPS-enabled) walrus.

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on April 3, 2007

John Lennon would be boggling, and Lewis Carroll would be thinking of many things, if they read this news story:

Danish scientists are to put satellite tags on walruses to try to understand where the great beasts migrate.

They will track animals for two months off west Greenland – and gauge how hunting, oil exploration and climate change may be affecting the animals.

The project is being run by the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources and the Danish Polar Centre.

The satellite data will be shared with BBC News and posted on its website so readers can follow the migration.
