Pressure on land: Here commit walrus suicide

Floods, starving polar bears and icebergs collapsing the - scenes, we automatically associate with the climate change exposure of the world as we know it today.

In the 'Our Planet' we are thus shown how the walruses - confused by the shrinking ice cover and their concurrent poor sight - involuntarily throwing themselves in death, as the clip above shows.

The big animals looks only good, when they are in the water, and do not therefore understand how high the cliffs are.

All they know is that they have to join the flock at the bottom and find food, " explains the show's narrator, the famous naturalist and facilitator David Attenborough.

It writes the Daily Mail.

- When they get hungry, they have to return to the sea. In their desperation to make it, falling hundreds from the heights, they never should have moved up in.
