Polar bears

On my recent trip to Svalbard I was lucky enough to get to spend many hours up close with four polar bears on the edge of the arctic pack ice. One swam round our ship curiously checking us out, while others decided we were nothing of interest and so stretched and went to sleep or got back to eating the remains of a seal. It was a huge privilege to be able to share these incredible animals’ environment with them, at 81° north.
