POLAR BEARS AND MY BEST SHOTS OF THE DAY
The temperature dropped considerably today, but I survived day number two on the tundra. Polar bears really are amazing animals and it's been an amazing experience to share these past few days with them.
Polar bears have been the subject of major media attention this year, mainly due to the long-term threat to their survival posed by climate change. During this time of year (for approximately six weeks), polar bears gather at Hudson Bay just out side of Churchill to wait for the sea ice to form so they can venture out to hunt for food. As climate change melts more and more of the ice and extends the melt season, polar bears are being forced to wait longer, increasing their chance of starvation.
Here are few of my best shots from today. If these pictures don't convince you to do a little more to preserve the planet, I am not sure what will.
