(NationalGeographic) Russian Refuge - Wrangel Island
Wrangel Island is a haven for wildlife, frozen in space and time.
Wrangel’s sprawling gravel spits are home to large haul-outs of Pacific walruses, especially since climate change has made their preferred habitat—the ice pack—ever more tenuous. A healthy adult like this big female usually holds its own in a fight with a polar bear.
