Russian Photographer Takes Photos Of Polar Bears That Took Over Abandoned Buildings


Polar bears, the largest bear species, usually roam icy Arctic landscapes. But Russian photographer Dmitry Kokh captured something extraordinary: polar bears exploring an abandoned weather station on Kolyuchin Island in the Chukchi Sea.

The station, built in 1934 and left deserted since 1992, became an unexpected home for these majestic creatures. Dmitry shared his excitement, saying he always aimed to photograph polar bears, expecting to find them on Wrangel Island. But this time, they stumbled upon them in the abandoned buildings on Kolyuchin Island.

Dmitry described their journey as unforgettable, covering over 1200 miles of untouched landscapes, villages, and diverse fauna. He shared his experience on Instagram, highlighting the beauty and remoteness of the Russian Arctic.

The images captured by Dmitry Kokh offer a rare glimpse into the lives of polar bears, showcasing their adaptability and resilience even in unexpected environments.
