photographs from alaska’s national wildlife refuge by steven kazlowski , who notes"i never got close to these amazing animals, they got close to me," pointing out that "polar bears are inquisitive, sociable, and super intelligent." he was even woken one morning by a curious young polar bear who had entered his tent and began tapping on his head.

“it is not dangerous to photograph bears if you…give them their space,” he says. it takes time to learn how to read the behaviour of the animal to understand what is safe and what is not safe.”

but kazlowkis, who’s photos are documented in his book, “the last polar bear,” notes the effects that climate change is having on the animals, as less summer ice, which is needed to hunt seals, “will lead to the loss of a great wild creature in one of the last wild environments left in the world.”
