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 prints—as well as copies of my books. Both @CristinaMittermeier and I will be there for the weekend, so make sure not to miss us.

This photograph is part of a series I'm releasing for a special event at the @PaulNicklenGallery on December 9th and 10th. It'll be available in an open edition in a beautifully framed, gift-ready presentation, at a Christmas-friendly price point. Contact @PaulNicklenGallery for more details. Leopard seals have, at times, been demonized because of their fierce-looking, toothy mouths and stealth hunting ability. The second largest species of seal in the Antarctic, these massive, intelligent pinnipeds are known for their distinctive calls, which vary based on the individual, as well as their unmatched curiosity. I was fortunate to spend one of the most memorable experiences of my life, when I spent three days interacting and playing with a female seal, a story which became iconic through my @TED talk at Long Beach, California.

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 didn’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 truth—which is hard to hear—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. It’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.

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 @PropertyBrothers’ @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.
