Polar bears, as the largest extant bear species, as well as the largest land carnivores, are truly captivating creatures. However, most of us are used to seeing them surrounded by snow on the frozen waters of the Arctic. This is exactly why we were surprised to find out that Russian photographer Dmitry Kokh has managed to photograph these large animals at an abandoned weather station on Kolyuchin Island in the Chukchi Sea. The station was built in 1934 and closed in 1992. It is quite unusual to see polar bears walking around in what feels like a post-apocalyptic human land.

“I always wanted to get some nice shots of polar bears, and that was the main target of our expedition. We expected to meet them mostly on Wrangel Island, famous all around the world for being home to many bears. Not this year, as we found out later—maybe because of the very cold summer. But nature always sends you something when you least expect it—when we passed by Kolyuchin Island near the Northern coast of Chukotka, we saw some movement in the abandoned windows there. And when we got close—those were bears! Never before were they seen in those buildings, so that was once-in-a-lifetime situation,” the photographer told Bored Panda.
