The excellent wildlife photographer, Paul Nicklens, normally posts incredibly scenes and tales from around the world. His latest posts have generally featured whales, penguins, and polar bears.

However, his latest topic had nothing to do with incredible scenery, but with the sad plight of the polar bear. Taken at Baffin Island, we see this dying polar bear as a weakish, sad, lost animal in a landscape devoid of snow. Up until now, his Instagram post has amassed 1.4m views.

According to some scientists who study the effects of global warming polar bears will likely become extinct well within the next 100 years.

The video can be viewed here but it is not an easy thing to watch. Our purpose is not to sadden or depress our readers, but perhaps add a slight contribution to spreading awareness.


Nicklen says, “The simple truth is this—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 Earth—our home—first.”
