Two Male Polar Bears
Photographer: Chase Dekker
Location: 12 miles off the coast of Nordaustlandet, Svalbard
Story: 
Two male polar bears fight over a seal carcass 12 miles off the coast of Nordaustlandet in the Svalbard Archipelago. As their world melts faster and faster beneath their feet, every meal they can get could mean the difference between life or death. During this experience we were lucky enough to be surrounded by 14 polar bears within a 2 mile radius. It was the most quintessential Arctic experience I could have ever imagined.
