The Marine Mammals Management Program of the US Fish and Wildlife Service

and management of Pacific walrus, polar bears, and sea otters and the goal

to management, carried out through the cooperative efforts of many
partners.  Management and research efforts are coordinated at the local,
state and international level.  Current challenges focus on understanding
the effects of climate change, notably the extreme retreat of sea ice, on
the ice-dependent species and developing appropriate management strategies.
