Walrus tags lost at sea

by bryan kennedy on May. 15th, 2007

The process of science is often portrayed as deliberate and successful. However, it's good to remember that discovering things about our natural world can often be trying and full of failure. In an effort to understand how walruses near Greenland migrate, eight of the animals were satellite tagged. Alas, all but one tag has now stopped working or has fallen off its walrus. Track the one remaining walrus.
