Walrus from Space

Become Walrus Detectives with our brand new ‘Walrus From Space’ teacher guide and classroom presentation.

Help us find walrus from space

Walrus are facing the reality of the climate crisis and we need to know more about how they are affected.

WWF and the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) are asking teachers and students to become ‘Walrus Detectives’ and help contribute to conservation science by searching for walrus in thousands of satellite images taken from space!
