Is it just me, or does he look a little bit like he’s smiling? I hope he is, because if it goes the way scientists are predicting, the only polar bears left in the world will all be living in zoos within seventy years. They will be completely extinct in the wild. So I guess it gives me some comfort that in knowing that maybe they could find a little happiness in captivity, if humans don’t learn to put the welfare of all the Earth’s creatures above their own desires before it’s too late.
