In 2016, Al Gore invited me to Antarctica as part of his @ClimateReality project, and he used this image during his TED talk about optimism. I believe it captures the ephemeral beauty of ice. Together with @CristinaMittermeier and @Sea_Legacy, I have seen the disastrous effects of climate change in person so, so many times. Tonight, Cristina and I will take part in an internationally webcast one-hour conversation with @PropertyBrothersโ€™ @MrSilverScott as part of 24 hours of artists, thought leaders, business visionaries, politicians and musicians bringing this ultra important issue to the forefront. Tune into our Facebook page at 8PM EST to hear it.

this is painful to watch and see how we are distroying life on this planet. Yet this is teh result of our greed.


2017.12.10. 15:21
It really is heartbreaking ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ญ We definitely have to change the way we treat our home (the Earth) and all helpless animals... We need to make a change! Now!

I am back in New York City to attend events at the @PaulNicklenGallery on Dec 9th and 10th. Please contact them for questions regarding events, prices and prints. This print is available in open edition at a holiday-friendly price, with partial proceeds going to @Sea_Legacy. I will be signing these printsโ€”as well as copies of my books. Both @CristinaMittermeier and I will be there for the weekend, so make sure not to miss us.

While in the Arctic with the @Sea_Legacy expedition crew a few months ago, @CristinaMittermeier and I documented a starving polar bear roaming through an abandoned Inuit camp along the shores of Baffin Island. A noted bear biologist could not pinpoint exactly what had caused this bear to starve to death. We do know that he didnโ€™t have any visible wounds and that he was not old. At one time, this bear would have been a big healthy male, like the beautiful bear pictured here. Many of you asked if we could have saved the starving bear or euthanized him to ease his pain. Thank you for all your engagement and for caring about these bears as much as I do. The truthโ€”which is hard to hearโ€”is that he was on his last legs. His muscles had atrophied beyond repair. Plus, it would have been highly illegal to feed him or approach him. Obviously, we could not euthanize him, for legal, cultural and personal reasons. Instead of becoming angry or hopeless, we must work harder for solutions. There is hope for the remaining population of 25,000 polar bears. Itโ€™s up to all of us to change our habits if we want to see results. Click the link in my bio to learn more about these solutions and how they will work towards drawdown, where the warming of the planet finally stops, and reverses.

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?

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
