Requested Walrus Tracking Map
Over the last four weeks we did not receive any transmissions from any tagged walrus. This summary map shows the movement paths for 20 walruses we tagged and received locations for during 2015. Walruses were tagged in the Chukchi Sea from 4–18 June, 2015. The last location received for each walrus is marked with an "X".

Over the last five months, the deployed tags transmitted for an average of 56 days, ranging from 1 to 134 days. During this time we received an average of 234 locations (15–456 locations) per walrus. Walruses traveled, on average, a minimum distance of 1,388 km (862 miles), ranging from 33–3,348 km (21–2,080 miles). At a minimum, these walruses traveled, an average of 25 km (15.5 miles) per day.
