Seeing the polar bear wandering deep into the tundra, suddenly a sense of sadness surfaced.

Are we able do enough so that our next generations can continue to witness this majestic creature?

With all these thoughts coming through, I wished I could say a proper farewell to the bear, as I may not be seeing it again for the rest of my life.

And then it stopped, and turned its head towards me.
