Polar Bear Swimming Around Sea Ice


Paul Souders wins the  BBC 2014 Wildlife Photographer of the Year: Animals in Their Environment award , for this eerie image of a polar bear swimming around ice.  Taken 30 miles off the shore of Canada, it took Souders 3 days to scout for the shot.

The biggest challenge facing Polar Bears today is the Arctic warming which limits their territory.  The melting polar and glacial ice from global warming is making it more difficult for them to hunt seals, which are their main food source.
