About this book

Excessive hunting has reduced the populations of these once abundant pinnipeds. In some parts of Greenland the walrus is still a resource that provides meat and income in a community under increasing economic pressure. This book describes the characteristics and life history of a distinctively social animal, and aims to increase awareness of its precarious position.
