Drift ice in the Okhotsk Sea off the coast of Rausu fishing port, Hokkaido, Japan. It is the southernmost tip of the Arctic drift ice. In response to extreme climate change, it has become a rehabilitation base for conservation sea eagles. Especially the tiger head sea eagle. Tiger head sea eagle is one of the largest sea eagles. Because the breeding habitat on Sakhalin Island has been damaged, there are only about 6,000 left in the world. Tiger head sea eagles, whitetail sea eagles, and other sea eagle sea birds are safe to eat and happily fly under the protection of Japan.
