WILD & FREE

Polar bear having a nice rest on an ice floe.

The sea ice is shrinking at an alarming rate, which has a huge impact for the bears as this is their main hunting ground. More and more bears are being found to have drowned while trying to find the ice, even though they can swim up to sixty miles or so!

I hope the ice does not completely vanish and that they always have somewhere to hunt!

(Spitsbergen – Scandinavian Arctic)

    You are so incredibly lucky to be able to photograph all these amazing animals in their natural habitat. What a gorgeous animal.
