Beautiful animals and annoying people seem to go together.
Day two of our tundra adventure. Two wolf sightings made this day really special. And if this isn’t enough, there are always Sik Sik around to cheer you up.
A very exciting first day at Seal River Lodge. Seeing the tundra without snow is a great experience and having a sleeping polar bear at your doorstep is just the best thing ever.
We are back in Polar bear country. Yes, we are here to see Polar bears (and various other wildlife) and No, there is no snow!
We finally made it out to the Nanuk Lodge. Being at such a remote location really feels slighlty surreal. And even if we didn’t see what we came here to see, we had a wonderful time. I wish I could have stayed there much longer…
It didn’t really cross my mind that we would not make it to Nanuk as planned. Well, here we are now, stuck in Thompson, with a big storm on its way to hit us.
We’re going back to polar bear country and are hoping to experience some of nature’s best moments.
Previously extinct in the wild, the European Bison is back roaming the Bialowieza forest in Poland . But it requires some perseverance to actually see one.
Some more information about the work of the volunteers here at Samboja Lestari: Ginger leaf cutting and bamboo chopping.
At Samboja Lestari we are working with orangutans and sun bears, that are kept here because they need help after humans had caused them harm in various ways.
