Majestic Beast Nanuk


Nunavut is the newest Canadian province, having been carved out of the Northwest Territories in 1999.  It is a vast Arctic land, lightly occupied and bearing greater resemblance to Greenland than Ontario.  Award winning aerial videographer Florian Ledeaux shot this stunning video of a polar bear walking across the icebergs floating in the Arctic Sea.  The video illustrates the fragility of the world's eco-system to continued global warmimg.

Description: The great polar bear called Nanuk in Inuktitut is an impressive animal. We spent every day trying to spot polar bears and then we saw fresh tracks and knew we were close. We all stayed on a deck trying to find it anywhere, looking constantly at the endless horizon with my binoculars, and then I saw something and I had to double check, but it was the king of the Arctic, swimming only a few metres away from the boat. Tears started to come to my eyes and my heart was beating faster and faster as we followed from a distance. During the expedition in extreme high arctic we met 13 polar bears. I will never forgot this experience and the time we spent learning how they live. Follow me on : Facebook : Instagram :
