Notes from DaVic Gallery:   A pair of walrus hauling-out in the middle of the night under the bright shining starts.  Simple and beautiful drawing by Ningeokuluk Teevee.

Hauling-out is the behaviour associated with true seals, sea lions, fur seals and walruses of temporarily leaving the water between periods of foraging activity for sites on land or ice. Hauling-out is necessary in seals for mating and giving birth. Other benefits of hauling-out may include predator avoidance, thermal regulation, social activity, parasite reduction and rest.
