Polar Bears & Humans

The Polar bear is a threatened species, with an uncertain future. The main Polar bear conservation focus today is the long term challenges with global warming, melting ice and warmer sea water, but there are also short term challenges. 800-1000 Polar bears are killed by humans every year – about 5 percent of the total population – by Native people, trophy hunters and illegal hunters. Little information is published about hunting levels, sustainable hunting or long term impacts of rising skinn prices. In the project “Polar Bears & Humans” Ole J Liodden is investigation these topics, combined with photo stories and interviews. The first outcome will be a high-quality book.

Penguin World

One of Oles greatest passions as a photographer is penguins. These amazing creatures have much in common with humans and they are great to observe and photograph. Since 2006 he has explored the southern oceans and photographed 15 out of 18 penguin species, and it has now turned into a project – Penguin World – together with fellow photographers, experts and partners. The Penguin World project is a non-profit organization focusing on our marine ecosystem. We believe penguins are the best Ambassadors to address conservation issues and challenges for the marine life. For communicating the message we are publishing books, articles and arranging outdoor exhibitions worldwide to drive more attention to these important conservation topics. We also work close with Partners who are global companies with social responsibility and want to join forces for a better future for a Living Ocean.
