Thanks to the thousands of people who participated in this assignment! What better way to understand the real impact of climate change than to ask a global community of photographers to share their stories about it. Our hope was to harness the power of collaborative storytelling and have a real impact on both policy and public perception.

Canon Ambassador Brutus Östling joins WWF polar bear survey
Canon Ambassador Brutus Östling is preparing to join the Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) on a scientific expedition that sets off on 11 April 2014 to collect critical data about Europe’s most westerly polar bear population.

BrutusOstlingWWF01“I think this will be one of my most important trips in terms of reporting on the scientific work,” he predicts. “I hope my pictures will inspire people to take climate change seriously and realise how beautiful this world is. The polar bears are living life on the edge – but I think it’s not too late if we can work it out.”
