WALRUS HAUL-OUT, NEAR CAPE DEZHNEV

WALRUS HAUL-OUT, NEAR CAPE DEZHNEV

Unlike Spitsbergen, if walruses are on land, we are not allowed to land as well; if we were already on land and they should happen to haul out, then that would have been permitted, but as they are hunted in this region, they are far more wary of Man, so even approaching by zodiac had to be undertaken with caution.
