In the vast Canadian wilderness, even the littlest feet can get tired. And when those tiny feet belong to a polar bear cub, a helping hand from mom can make all the difference.
One lucky cub found itself on a ride with its mother, creating an endearing moment captured by photographer David Jenkins.
For a decade, Jenkins has been dedicated to capturing the bond between newborn polar bear cubs and their mothers.
His stunning photographs offer a glimpse into their lives in Wapusk National Park’s “denning area,” where polar bear mothers retreat to give birth.
To access this special location, Jenkins was granted a rare license reserved for top wildlife photographers.
Within this snowy wonderland, Jenkins observed the cubs as they ventured out, exploring their surroundings for the first time. With watchful eyes, their mothers watched their every move, ensuring their safety.
But the magic didn’t end there. Jenkins witnessed an incredibly rare occurrence: a mother polar bear caring for three surviving cubs.
The images captured by Jenkins evoke a heartwarming sense of connection and affection between the polar bear mothers and their cubs.
These precious moments remind us of the tender bonds in the wild, even among the fiercest creatures.
