Unforgettable Encounters: The Best Places to See Polar Bears in the Wild

We have traveled to Alaska and boarded a small plane.  Flying through the Brooks Range, a mountain range in far northern North America stretching some 700 miles from west to east across northern Alaska into Canada’s Yukon Territory it felt like as if we were so close to the mountain tops that we could reach out and touch the peaks.  Our destination was the arctic.  The small village of Kaktovik.

The New Big 5: Unveiling the Majestic Animals Reshaping Wildlife Conservation

What is the New Big 5? Most people know the traditional Big 5 animals:  Lion, Leopard, Cape Buffalo, Rhino and Elephant.  They were named as the top animals to hunt on Safari in Africa.  In time, they became the top animals to photograph. The New Big 5 was an international initiative to create a New Big 5 of Photography and not hunting.  Animals that we want to shoot with a camera and not a gun.  The New Big 5 are Polar Bears, Gorillas, Lions, Tigers and Elephants.

The traditional Big 5 was relatively easy to see.  Travel to Africa and more than likely you will encounter most if not all of the Big 5.  The New Big 5 is harder.  It means traveling to the Arctic, Asia and Africa.  Even then you might not encounter all of these animals.

Kati and I did just that.
