Photo by @CoryRichards #NatGeoInspires // A curious and hungry polar bear on Rudolf Island. With climate change and receding arctic ice, the seals that polar bears have always relied on as a food source become more and more scarce. Our impacts go so far beyond what we see in our day to day lives, affecting every thread in the tapestry of our global ecosystem.

We’ll be selecting our favorites for a chance to win a National Geographic Expedition Weekend Photography Workshop in Washington DC and more. Details at link in my profile @coryrichards
