Grizzly Bears, Bella Coola, British Columbia, Canada, Day to Night™, 2016
This scene, scouted near the Tweedsmuir Park Lodge in Bella Coola, captures the grizzly bears looking for food in their natural habitat during the salmon run. I photographed for 36 hours, observing the gentler nature of these bears that most people do not get to witness. Due to climate change, the rivers in which the salmon travel are hotter and drier than ever before, leading to an increased number of fish deaths and a lesser number of fishes for the bears to feed on. I hope this image helps to create awareness about the dangers of climate change and the effect of man on natural habitats.

التقطت هذا المشهد في تويدسموير بارك لودج في بيلا كولا، وهو يجسد الدببة الرمادية في بحثها عن الطعام في مأواها الطبيعي خلال موسم هجرة سمك السلمون. صوّرت لمدة 36 ساعة حيث تعرّفت إلى الوجه اللطيف للدببة في تجربة لا يتسنى للجميع خوضها. بسبب التغيّر المناخي، أمست الأنهر التي تهاجر عبرها أسماك السلمون أكثر حرارة وجفافاً من قبل، ما يفضي إلى ازدياد أعداد السمك النافق وبالتالي انخفاض أعداد الأسماك التي تشكل طعاماً للدببة. أرجو بأن تساهم هذه الصورة في رفع الوعي حول مخاطر التغيّر المناخي وتأثير الإنسان على الموائل الطبيعية.
