This was my home for the last two weeks during a Quark expedition to our planets geographic North Pole. I had the unique experience of joining the North Pole Summit on board of the Russian nuclear powered ice breaker "50 Years of Victory". Exploring the arctic, a beautiful and fragile ecosystem, and witnessing climate change with my own eyes was wonderful and simultaneously frightening experience.
Listening to and learning from the @sea_legacy team (@paulnicklen and @cristinamittermeier), the polar bear specialist Nikita Ovsyanikov, Inuit elder David Serkoak, climate change scientist Maureen Raymo, policy advisor @franulmer, author James Raffan and adventurer Alan Chambers was eye-opening.
I hope we all come back and find our own ways of fighting climate change as arctic ambassadors! | A Repost @timokohlerphotography
