Entry Description

Big Male Polar Bear sleeping on the disappearing sea ice near the shores of Svalbard. 2016 was an El-Nino year with higher sea temperatures than normal and while this strait was supposed to be with solid sea ice in June - it was almost wide open. The Polar Bears are the ones who suffer the most of climate change.
