Polar Bears in the Wild

In November I traveled to Churchill, Manitoba, Canada to photograph polar bears along the Hudson Bay.
Seeing these magnificent animals in their home environment was fantastic.
Learning more about their diminishing home, the ice that is retreating due to global warming,
is so sad. I stayed on the ice for 6 days and saw the bears right outside the Tundra Lodge.
We observed the devotion of polar bear mothers to their cubs, their protectiveness --
Hope springs eternal, maybe things will change and maybe they can survive?
