HOPE IN THE NORTH

February in North Manitoba, temperatures are reaching -57° Celsius. This is the time for mom Polar Bear to emerge from her den, with her cubs seeing the daylight for the very first time. Baby bears are discovering the world … a world that they believe to be beautiful, cold, frozen, pure and white. This family scene is like a big hope for the future … or a distress call from Polar Bears to the entire world: « Will you be able to protect me? »
