Heart wrenching video of starving polar bear

When photographer Paul Nicklen and filmmakers from conservation group Sea Legacy arrived in the Baffin Islands, they came across a heartbreaking sight: a starving polar bear on its deathbed.

This is pretty hard to watch, so prepare yourself, but this is the reality of our world today. The filmmakers are showing us this so that we can truly see what it means when it is said that polar bears are on the path towards extinction if things don’t change. It’s a chain folks, don’t think that this phenomenon won’t ever touch us. We are not immune to our own actions. Today it’s the polar bears, tomorrow it’s us. And the common folk will probably be the first to go, because you know the rich will stockpile everything. It’s time to get it together, or pay the price down the road.
