Artist's Description

Polar bear, Ursus maritimus, which means “sea bear”. Polar bear mother and her cub standing on a frozen lake in the Tundra. They are back-lit by the setting sun creating a pinky-golden glow around their bodies. This bear has not had anything substantial to eat for about 8 months. She is waiting for the ice to freeze on Hudson Bay so that she can hunt for Harp Seals.
Canon 500D, zoom lens.
Adult female polar bears weigh from 330 to more than 550 pounds, 150 to more than 250 kilos. The cub is 10-11 months old & still breast feeding. Polar Bears are endangered due to global warming. It is estimated that the Churchill population will be unviable in 30 years, and it is the largest single Polar bear population. The Arctic Ice is melting at an alarming rate. Summer ice has reduced by 36% in 50 years, winter ice is thinner than ever before and the season when bears can hunt is getting shorter. Polar Bears are to Global Warming and Climate Change what Canaries were to Mining.
