WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
At this moment, walrus are confronting the truth of the environment emergency.
With the Arctic warming more than twice as quick as the worldwide normal, their reality is switching up them as ocean ice withdraws significantly.
With an absence of ocean ice, walrus must choose the option to assemble ashore in a lot bigger numbers. At the point when a huge number of walrus 'pull out' on to packed sea shores, the results can be lethal.
As the Arctic is a huge, distant and evolving scene, we basically don't think enough about the number of walrus there are, and what the environment emergency is meaning for them.
To shield walrus from the effects of environmental change and guarantee a sound future in the Arctic, we should comprehend them better.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Satellites high in the sky are gathering pictures that permit us to distinguish walrus across the entire of the Arctic, without upsetting them.
The satellites will catch symbolism of the Arctic coastline covering a region over double the size of Wales including locales that would typically be troublesome and tedious to get to.
From these high-goal pictures, we will actually want to check or gauge the number of walrus there are in various zones, and anticipate how their numbers change in contrast with ocean ice misfortune and their evolving climate.
This first since forever worldwide enumeration of the species utilizing satellite symbolism will give researchers a more clear image of how the populace is getting along.
By contributing towards the comprehension of walrus populace patterns, we desire to impart our discoveries to Arctic researchers, governments and networks to help oversee walrus so they can have a sound future.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED?
You can help include walrus in the large number of pictures that will be accumulated by the satellites throughout the following five years.
In 2021 we will test an including stage with researchers and some volunteer gatherings, to open the stage to the overall population later in the year.
Our aggregate activities amount to something amazing and over the course of the following five years we desire to connect with more than 500,000 resident researchers through our walrus tally.
