  1. Thank you Paul for sharing your talent with others and myself….I have no words to express. You have a great gift!!! Also check out man made weasons….could be AKA global warming…

  2. So let me see if I've got this straight: There is not enough Ice except for the Narwhals and there is too much ice for them. I am very passionate for saving our environment but this is propaganda masked as something totally different. PS- I don't need a Bible thumping atheist to tell me where I'm wrong or set me straight with respect to my comment.

  3. Wonderful story and such an amazing work I wish I had half of adventured he has had. Still cant understand the 22 dislikes I guess depressive people have nothing else to do.

  4. 解説にないので、まだ知らない方のために補足します。

  5. Wow! I am deeply moved by his love for all animals, and his love for the ice and all that survive there. He has a deep understanding of how animals live and survive! His humor mixed with his genuine emotion, spoke to my soul. I wish everyone truly cared, as he does….maybe the world wouldn't be endangered, along with these precious species that sustain our lives. Greedy, power hungry corporations, unfortunately, will NEVER care. Sad.
