Pacific walruses depend on sea ice to survive — but the ice is melting out from underneath them due to climate change.
That's why we petitioned the feds to list these amazing animals under the Endangered Species Act — instead, they were put on a waiting list for protection, where they've been languishing since 2008. Now, after follow-up legal action by the Center, the feds must decide whether to protect walruses by this fall.
