Video by @PaulNicklen // Earlier this week, we shared a heartbreaking video of a starving polar bear. It was incredibly hard to watch, and sad to endure filming, but it provides an important perspective into the future for polar bears. Unless we curb carbon emissions and pursue solutions to achieve drawdown, this is the grim fate for species. The good news is that a wide array of both proven and promising new solutions already exist. Reforesting the oceans and restarting natural nutrient cycles can drawdown carbon, deacidify and cool surface waters, at the same time as producing sustainable food and biofuel. @Sea_Legacy went to the Canadian Arctic to document the effects of climate change. We found them. We also found healthy bears, like this. Follow me at @paulnicklen. @sea_legacy #turningthetide

Banana and orange smoothie for breakfast! Mad bush skillz to the max! With a generator and fridge do I still qualify as a dirtbag? Or have I crossed over into grey nomad territory?

膝の手術から間もない事もあり、不安もあった今回のツアー、でも嬉しいことに今日、今回の目標になっていた核心までのLa Rambla の8c部分がノーフォールで繋がった。
