The Department of Interior's Fish and Wildlife Service sent what's called a Letter of Authorization to Shell, saying the company's two drilling rigs must maintain a buffer of at least 15 miles between them in order to minimize the number of Pacific walruses and polar bears that could be harmed by exploratory drilling activities.
