SECOND POLAR BEAR OFF GREENLAND

SECOND POLAR BEAR OFF GREENLAND

Very close to the first polar bear, we found this young female. She was starving and also tried to approach the ship. Tempting though it was to intervene, we couldn't, and just had to hope the first winter snows weren't too far away, in order to freeze the sea and improve her hunting chances.
