In heartbreaking scenes, the emaciated animal, bones visible through its yellowing fur, struggles to walk as it searches for food in an abandoned fishing camp.
The clip, taken on Canada’s Baffin Island, was recorded by photographer Paul Nicklen, who is part of conservation group Sea Legacy. The former biologist, who has now turned his hand to wildlife photography has seen over 3,000 bears in the wild, and believes climate change is to blame.
Loss of ice due to climate change is known to directly affect the ability of polar bears to feed and survive, as they rely on platforms of ice to reach their prey of ringed and bearded seal… I don’t understand those who deny climate change.
You don’t need to be a fucking scientist to see it.
When I arrived to Canada (over 20 years ago) winter was a lot colder, an average winter day in Montreal during January was -40 Celsius. I don’t remember having experienced that type of weather in a decade. Over are the days when I had to run looking for heat before my ears freeze. And you know what? I miss those days!
Humans are responsible for climate change and to drive precious species to extinction.
My heart goes to all those defenceless animals that are paying in advance the end of us.
