December, 2017 - Somerset Island, Nunavut, Canada - Starving
large adult male polar bear, looking for some food, any food and
likely died shortly after. The soul-crushing encounter of a male
desperately trying to satisfy his hunger by chewing on a
snowmobile seat after rummaging through a bin. During summer
the bears can go for several months without eating while they
wait for the Arctic Ice to solidify but because the ice is freezing
later and melting earlier, their fasting period is prolonged.
Without ice, there are no seals, the mains source of food for
polar bears. The emaciated polar bear struggled to find food. He
is the sad true face of climate change.
