From the BBC:

A stunning image of a young polar bear drifting to sleep on an iceberg, by British amateur photographer Nima Sarikhani, has won the Wildlife Photographer of the Year People's Choice Award.

"Sarikhani's breathtaking and poignant image allows us to see the beauty and fragility of our planet," British Natural History Museum director Dr. Douglas Gurr said.

"His thought-provoking image is a stark reminder of the integral bond between an animal and its habitat and serves as a visual representation of the detrimental impacts of climate warming and habitat loss."

Sarikhani made the image after three days searching for polar bears through thick fog off Norway's Svalbard archipelago.

this looks heavily manipulated in photoshop. the light on the bear and surrounding ice it lies upon looks incongruous to the light in the sky beyond the bear.

Another dramatic "we're killing the planet" photo.

Polar Bears are classified as marine mammals.
