В одной из частей «Автостопом по Галактике», моей любимой книге на все времена, одиозный Президент должен был узреть всю бесконечность Вселенной, всю ничтожность себя по сравнению с ней, и сойти с ума. Но он не только не сошел, а еще и утвердился во мнении, что он отличный чувак. После поездки в Арктику у меня такие же чувства. Меня наконец отпустило. То что парило больше не парит. Я сама себе отличный товарищ в походе и в жизни. Солнышко опять светит, птички снова поют, мне хорошо. Это, пожалуй, главное, что я привезла. 📸 @bogisis #goarctica #spitsbergen #svalbard

It’s hard to believe that plastic manages to find its way to the most remote parts of Svalbard in the Arctic‼️ . As we walked along the shores we picked up bags of plastic to do our bit to keep the oceans clean 🌊 . #plasticfree #saynotoplastic #keepouroceansclean #svalbard #arctic #animalconservation #animalprotection #animalwelfare #animalrescue #animaladvocate #ecotravel #volunteer #volunteering #ethicalchoices #ethicaltravel #nonprofit #animalmission #vulnerablespecies #endangeredspecies #criticallyendangeredspecies #makingadifference #worldanimalwarriors #waw

Yesterday was Arctic Sea Ice Day and what better way to highlight the plight of our planet than by talking about the significance of sea ice! 🌊 ❄️ Maritime mammals rely heavily on the ice for breeding, socialising, feeding and travelling. And with climate change reducing the amount of ice in the arctic, it’s evident these species will struggle. Bearded seals rely on pack ice to birth their young in the spring time. As solitary animals they spend most of their time alone on ice floes. What’s more is they’re one of the main sources of food for the polar bear. Polar bears are already suffering as melting ice compromises their ability to traverse the land for food 💔 . . . #ice #seaice #svalbard #polarbears #polarbear #seal #beardedseal #pinniped #packice #globalwarming #climatechange #climate #environmentalism #environment #xr #extinctionrebellion #norway #planet #planetearth #earthcapture #visitsvalbard #landscape #sea #ocean #marine #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature

I see myself in the image, but it doesn’t seem real or that this level of beauty is possible. Our planet is extraordinary and we must do what we can to preserve it for the generations to come. Photo @browncannoniii

Eftersom isen stoppade oss från att åka längre norrut hade vi tid över till att vandra på tundran. Känslan av att befinna sig långt ute i Svalbards otämjda vildmark är en svårslagen upplevelse. När sommaren kommer töar bara det översta jordlagret av tundran upp och under finns den eviga tjälen, permafrosten, kvar. På tundran råder arktisk öken med mindre regn än i Sahara. Med hjälp av midnattssolen kommer det mikroskopiska livet snabbt igång på ytan och tundran är enormt produktiv under den korta sommaren. Många av växterna växer i tuvor och är endast ett par centimeter höga. På Svalbard är all växtlighet endast ett par centimeter högt och det finns varken träd eller buskar. #midnightsun #svalbard #arcticsummer #arcticflowers

Tisdag och snölängt. Det regnar i Ludvika och jag längtar efter vågor, doften av hav och minusgrader.. #svalbard 💙

The ice on Foxfonna is really complex! This clip shows horizontal structures formed where old crevasses have been squashed as the #glacier flowed downvalley, melt streams cutting across them, weathered ice, rotten #snow , heavy mineral dust loading from the surrounding moraines plus some iron oxides and algae staining the surface. And it will all look different tomorrow! #dronesofinstagram @djiglobal @insidenatgeo @nercscience #landscapephotography #dronephotography #Arctic #svalbard #outdoors 10twentynine.com

When I receive feedback like this from a client, friend & animal warrior it makes what I do worth every bit 🙏 . Repost @jean_underhill. . . . “Back from the most incredible experience ever! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have the opportunity to visit one of the most remote and stunning places on earth. We got up to the pack ice and couldn’t go any further North. It was magical and breathtaking. I will add photos slowly as I’m still reflecting on the experience. Thank you 🙏 to the founder of @worldanimalwarriors and my dog rescue pal and now travel buddy for encouraging us to go on this journey with her. Pascale, I will be eternally grateful to you for encouraging us to go on this expedition with you 🙏Next stop Antarctica?” ❄️ . When I first started WAW I realized that every animal mission I experienced changed my life for the better 💫 So I decided to share my expeditions with you all and opened up my missions for you to join me. Knowing that they have the same impact on my fellow animal warriors makes my heart full 💛 . Who wants to join me on my next mission? 🐾 . #svalbard #gexpedition #polarbear #arctic #animalconservation #animalprotection #animalwelfare #animalrescue #animaladvocate #ecotravel #volunteer #volunteering #ethicalchoices #ethicaltravel #nonprofit #animalmission #vulnerablespecies #endangeredspecies #criticallyendangeredspecies #makingadifference #worldanimalwarriors #waw

Guiding series #8 Snow melts fast during the short Svalbard summer, and it roars down to the sea in magnificent waterfalls such as this one just above Longyearbreen, on the side of Sarkofagen. .

Today I arrived in Svea, an small ex mining town on the artitic island of Spitsbergen, Svalbard. The island is located at the boarders of the arctic sea and lies ca. 1200 km from the north pole. In the 17th and 18th century, the island were used for whaling. Coal mining started here in the 19th century and I am here to work on documenting the mine structures with my colleagues from @niku_archaeology. Hoping to get a glimpse of the polarbear while I am here. . . The first picture is of an actual polarbear footprint, just some meters from where I am working. Probably some days old. . . . . . . . . #niku_archaeology #archaeology #archaeologylife #photography #ibm #nature #naturephotography #mountains #norway #svalbard #spitsbergen #arctic #documentaryphotography #documentary #polarbear #arcticfox #raindear #arcticnature #wildlifephotography #natgeo #nofilterneeded #arcticwildlife

REINROSE På rabber og rygger, som er eksponert for vind og frost, finner vi vegetasjon dominert av reinrose, som får selskap av rødsildre eller lav. Vi finner reinrosen på hele Svalbard (unntatt Bjørnøya) på tørre områder, med kalkrik jord. Reinrosen har en stor hvit parabolformet blomst med åtte kronblad, som effektivt utnytter sollyset. Planten kan bli svært gammel, eldre enn hundre år, og blomstrer først etter ti år. Norsk Polarinstitutt overvåker vegetasjonen på Svalbard. Overvåkning av vegetasjon inngår i: * Miljøovervåking Svalbard og Jan Mayen (MOSJ) * Climate-Ecological Observatory for Arctic Tundra (COAT) Les mer om vegetasjon på Svalbard: https://www.npolar.no/tema/vegetasjon-svalbard/ #flora #svalbardflora #svalbardblomster #arktiskflora #arcticflora #hviteblomster #svalbard #svalbardplants #villblomster

The abandoned mining village of Grumant ... . . A beautiful place to visit. Grumant belonged to the Sovietunion and sat right on the shore of Isfjorden. During its heyday at the beginning of the 1950s, more than 1,000 people lived there and was one of the largest settlements in svalbard. The mine was abandoned in 1965 and most houses were demolished or moved and now there are only a few buildings left. . #thegreatoutdoors #grumant #svalbard #visitsvalbard #visitnorway #bettermomentsas #arctic #mining #hiking #outdoor

Безусловно, не самый уютный пляж. Зато с видом на ледник🤗
