June is here so time for another image of the month. This one from a few years ago. We had a great time photographing this young polar bear cub. He was very curious, far more so than his sibling and always gave us some attention. Great for photography. And a nice cover of fresh snow doesn’t hurt either!
I figured today it might be a good day to post a polar ear photo since the current Biden Administration just announced today they have suspended oil drilling leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge that were issued by the outgoing Administration in January 2021. I can’t tell you how happy this makes me.
The arctic is fragile. We do well to treat it with some care. Hopefully the refuge will be drilling free for decades to come. And the polar bears will be happy about that.
We will be back in the Refuge for polar bears (hopefully) in 2022. I can’t wait.
