Heart-Wrenching Video Shows Starving Polar Bear on Iceless Land

When photographer Paul Nicklen and filmmakers from conservation group Sea Legacy arrived in the Baffin Islands, they came across a heartbreaking sight: a starving polar bear on its deathbed.

Nicklen is no stranger to bears. From the time he was a child growing up in Canada’s far north the biologist turned wildlife photographer has seen over 3,000 bears in the wild. But the emaciated polar bear, featured in videos Nicklen published to social media on December 5, was one of the most gut-wrenching sights he’s ever seen.

“We stood there crying—filming with tears rolling down our cheeks,” he said.

Watch the video at the source if you can. Cry like the rest of us who are suffering with what’s happening on our precious blue dot. The consequence of our behavior are horrendous.

Thanks!
