Dreaming on Sea Ice

Dreaming on Sea Ice
by Roie Galitz

In the fjords of Eastern Spitsbergen, a male Polar Bear is sleeping on the floating sea ice after eating a walrus. This image in the surroundings of Svalbard, reminded me of the danger of increasing sea temperatures, with potential sea ice melting and its impact on Polar Bears. Polar bears rely on sea ice for survival and "Dreaming on Sea Ice" shows the special relationship between the bear and his trusted ice.
