SeaLegacy co-founder, National Geographic photographer, acclaimed ocean conservationist, and TED Talks favourite, Paul Nicklen traces his extraordinary love affair with the polar regions in his most recent book, Born to Ice.

His powerful images of iconic arctic and antarctic wildlife and scenery, coupled with his inspiring photographic storytelling, blends ethereal beauty of the icy landscape with a compelling call to action. The Arctic is in Paul Nicklen's blood.

Born and raised on Baffin Island, Nunavut, he grew up in one of the only non- Inuit families in a tiny Inuit settlement amid the ice fields, floes, and frigid seas of Northern Canada. At an age when most children are playing hide-and-seek, he was learning important lessons on survival; how to read the weather, find shelter in a frozen snowscape, or live off the land as his Inuit neighbours had done for centuries.

Today, Nicklen is a naturalist and wildlife photographer uniquely qualified to portray the impact of climate change on the Polar Regions and their inhabitants, human and animal alike. Whether he is diving off the floe edge in the Canadian Arctic or sitting on a piece of glacial ice in Antarctica to scout for leopard seals, Paul Nicklen goes to great lengths and depths to secure his award-winning images of life in the polar regions.

This National Geographic-featured photographer and conservationist never shies away from extreme and challenging conditions as he feels urgently compelled to connect a global audience to the species and ecosystems he cares so deeply about.

One of the world's most acclaimed nature photographers, Nicklen focuses on marine wildlife and polar environments. For Nicklen, we must act now to save Earth's delicate ecosystems and the precious diversity of life. Combining some of his most extraordinary photographs with personal experiences - learning and inspirational - this stunning Paul Nicklen photo compendium is both a remarkable collection of nature photography and a passionate rallying cry to stand up, have a voice, and enact positive change for our planet.

    Both the talent and passion of Paul Nicklen are evident throughout this beautiful book. I go back to it time and time again to soak in the photographs and the stories. I just hope that there is still a chance for many of these species to survive - it is easy to be doubtful about this.

  • Perfect!

    Love this book! It’s filled with stunning images of the frozen world and the animals that live within it, and I can’t get enough of them. Paul Nicklen’s photography seems to really capture the world around us often in its raw form. I do not see how anyone who gets this book would be disappointed - it’s just beautiful!

  • Beautiful book
