Top 10 facts about walruses

Here are 10 things everyone should know about these majestic ocean wonders.

“We are waking a sleeping giant as a result of climate change. What happens in the Arctic doesn't stay in the Arctic. It's on the UK’s doorstep and it affects us all.” Rod Downie, Chief Polar Advisor, WWF
