The Pacific walrus is related to seals and sea lions, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. They congregate mostly areas of relatively shallow water, near ice or land. Yupik and Inupiat peoples have used this breed for generations, eating the meat and fashioning tools from the bones, says Scientific American. The melting of the Arctic ice has put their habitat in peril.
