Kevin Morgans had spent the best part of his Arctic expedition waiting to see a polar bear. So when he finally spotted a mother and her two cubs, he was delighted. However, the photographer’s images showed the depressing reality facing this endangered species.
Morgans is an award-winning wildlife photographer from Birkenhead, England. As part of his job, he’s traveled to some of the most remote locations on Earth in order to capture extraordinary creatures in their natural habitat.
In June 2018 Morgans traveled with fellow photographer Svein Wik to the remote Svalbard archipelago. This Norwegian island group lies in the Arctic Ocean, halfway between the North Pole and Scandinavia. So needless to say, it gets very cold there.
