SAFS in the News: Arctic sea ice loss impacts beluga whale migration

SAFS alum Donna Hauser and SAFS professor Kristin Laidre are featured in UW Today:
‘The annual migration of some beluga whales in Alaska is altered by sea ice changes in the Arctic, while other belugas do not appear to be affected.
A new study led by the University of Washington finds that as Arctic sea ice takes longer to freeze up each fall due to climate change, one population of belugas mirrors that timing and delays its migration south by up to one month.
