Hello friends, we have been tackling a lot of heavy issues as of late across all of our social media channels. So, for a brief moment, letโ€™s have a palette cleanser and focus on some beautiful pure white huskies photographed in Qaanaaq, Greenland. With that said, we are incredibly appreciative of the support that has been pouring in for @sea_legacy since #GivingTuesday. We have an ocean to save and you are helping make that happen. With so much #gratitude

Hello #NYC. I am going to be at the @paulnicklengallery today from 1pm to 8pm. Address is 347 West Broadway, NYC. There are many people who are emotional about the dying polar bear that we posted this week. Rightfully so. I will be addressing that and some messages of hope at 5pm. Please come down today and I would love to meet you. How do you think these polar bear tracks were made? A huge amount of #gratitude for all of the support pouring in for @Sea_Legacy. We must keep our film crew on the the front lines of the biggest issues facing our planet today. #bethechange #nature #naturelover #polarbear #fineartwithpurpose

Much of my life has been spent exactly like this; frigid, quiet, patient, waiting for the right light to capture the beauty of a polar bear. These majestic apex predators hold a place close to my heart andโ€”now more than everโ€”I am dedicated to protecting them. Next week, SeaLegacy will unveil footage of a polar bear that will shake some foundations. I hope you all will see it and help us spread the word about the dangers bears face in the Arctic. Please follow @Sea_Legacy, join The Tide (link in bio), and follow The Collective (listed below). We are #turningthetide for the oceans. Will you join us?

My entire @Sea_Legacy team was pushing through their tears and emotions while documenting this dying polar bear. Itโ€™s a soul-crushing scene that still haunts me, but I know we need to share both the beautiful and the heartbreaking if we are going to break down the walls of apathy. This is what starvation looks like. The muscles atrophy. No energy. Itโ€™s a slow, painful death. When scientists say polar bears will be extinct in the next 100 years, I think of the global population of 25,000 bears dying in this manner. There is no band aid solution. There was no saving this individual bear. People think that we can put platforms in the ocean or we can feed the odd starving bear. The simple truth is thisโ€”if the Earth continues to warm, we will lose bears and entire polar ecosystems. This large male bear was not old, and he certainly died within hours or days of this moment. But there are solutions. We must reduce our carbon footprint, eat the right food, stop cutting down our forests, and begin putting the Earthโ€”our homeโ€”first. Please join us at @sea_legacy as we search for and implement solutions for the oceans and the animals that rely on themโ€”including us humans. Thank you your support in keeping my @sea_legacy team in the field.

This week I posted a video of a starving bear. It was difficult to film, and even harder to watch, as evidenced by the reactions it elicited. The truth is hard, but photojournalism is more than pretty pictures. It can be a difficult job. Journalism exposesโ€”raw and without biasโ€”the worldโ€™s issues in the interest of transparency, honesty and, I believe, change for the better. At @Sea_Legacy, we want to break down the walls of apathy and move people to change. We went to the Canadian Arctic to document the effects of climate change. We found the good, the bad and the ugly, but mostly just beautiful animals and landscapes we want to protect. We will continue to share it all with you in the interest of creating positive and lasting change. Thank you for helping us in #TurningTheTide. @Sea_Legacy with @CristinaMittermeier.
