Within this site you will be able to learn about the walruses habitat, nutrition, reproduction, classification, adaptations, and much more! There is so much to learn about the organisms around us and it is time to navigate your way through where walruses live and what they do. If you have any question feel free to contact us!

         As University of Wisconsin La Crosse students, who are in the organismal biology class, we needed to create a website about an organism that interested us. Our class was taught by Dr. Gregory Sandland, Dr. Meredith Thomsen, and Dr. Kathyrn Perez. If you are interested in University of Wisconsin La Crosse here is a link to the university website UW-L.


To get started first take a look at the classification page. There you will learn how the walrus is classified based upon the attributes walruses have.
