Walrus hunting in the Chukchi Sea

Winter is very long in the Chukchi peninsula. To survive the harsh conditions and the long winter months, Chukchi people must hunt walrus as well as whales and seals during the short summer. This is subsistence and sustainable hunting as quotas are estimated every year.
