Tracking the Plight of the Walrus

As a followup to my post about abandoned walrus calves, here is a nifty plugin for Google Earth that allows anyone to track the movements of radio-tagged walruses in the Arctic.

The page is in Danish, but I think ScienceBlogs readers are smart enough to figure out how to download and use this stuff. Many thanks to Lief Toudal Pederson of the Danish Center for Remote Sensing for putting together this data and making it available to the world – this is only one of his many impressive projects.
