Wouldn’t you please help?

On an arctic expedition from Svalbard, we spotted this polar bear at about 81 degrees north. Fast melting glaciers and pack ice melting sooner than normal due to climate change have make extinction of this beautiful creature a real threat. Here the napping polar bear appears to be pleading/praying for our help.

We are his last recourse. Did he gaze in silent retribution as he gently lowered his head onto his paws? Giant paws that could snatch an elusive seal.
