Wrangel Island is an island in the Arctic Ocean, between the Chukchi Sea and East Siberian Sea. It lies astride the 180° meridian, displacing the International Date Line eastwards at this latitude to avoid the island as well as the Chukchi Peninsula on the Russian mainland. The closest land to Wrangel Island is tiny and rocky Herald Island located 60 km to the east. Wrangle Island has the highest density of polar bear dens as well as Pacific walrus population in the world. Gray whales migrating from Mexico use Wrangel Island as a major feeding ground. Over 100 species of birds, many of them endangered, migrate to the island during the summer time. Over 400 plants have been identified, more than any other Arctic island.
