An Anchorage Museum exhibit will feature the cultural significance of the walrus and polar bear.
Aaron Leggett is the curator of Alaska history and culture at Anchorage Museum. During an interview with KNBA’s Morning Line, he says an ever-changing climate has forced the walrus and polar bear to adapt.
“These two giants are also on the forefront of science an indicators of climate change, certainly,” he said. “Polar bears, for example, (are) spending more time on land, or walruses having to find new locations for haul-out sites.”
