Her calculations, presented this week at the North American Congress for Conservation Biology in Missoula, Montana, suggest that the predators may be able to survive for six months on land-based foods, ו, because of climate change, they may have to.

Other scientists have warned that a lack of sea ice due to warming temperatures in the Arctic—and declining seal prey populations—could drive this population extinct by 2020.
