Hi and welcome you awesome people of the press!

PLEASE HELP US spread the word and do good by mentioning us in your publications.   The site is run by volunteers, led by The Big Bear, for no money (although we do allow people to make a donation, that’s entirely optional).

Not a good sight

I spoke to the Veolia Wildlife Photograher of the year, Arne Naevra, about his iconic series of photographs depicting a polar bear clutching to a shrinking chunk of ice. He’s kindly allowed us permission to publish one of those images here to help convey what GoodNewsForPolarBears.org is all about.
One of the photos from this series took runner up in the 2007 “One Earth” Awards.
I think the image says it all.
