Proud mom

On an arctic expedition from Svalbard, we spotted this polar bear pair of mother and daughter at about 81 degrees north, perched on a mound of ice. We observed them for a few hours giving warmth to each other. Here mom looks adoringly at her daughter. Her future is at stake due to their shrinking habitat, and momma can only do so much.

This was a sneak peak into a world of parenting and nurturing, the proud predator simultaneously diligent and indulgent.
