#011 "Nanuk" - 11"x14" acrylic on wood panel

The undisputed king of the Canadian North is the polar bear, (Nanuk in Inukitut). The polar bear ranges around 8 feet in length and weighs between 900 and 1,600 pounds due to a healthy diet of mainly seals. Canada is home to over half of the world's population of these gigantic creatures (they are the largest land carnivore) and thus is in charge of much of their survival. As stewards to their Northern domain we must consider our environmental impact and act now to save these magnificent giants.
