Sled dogs

Sled dogs playing in the snow

Åge Hammeken Danielsen, a traditional hunter, drives his sled dogs through Walrus Bay, Ittoqqortoormiit, East Greenland. Climate change is the single biggest threat to polar bears. As the sea ice around Ittoqqortoormiit diminishes, polar bears are spending longer on land and coming into town. In recent years, there has been a worrying increase in human-polar bear encounters throughout East Greenland.
