Paul Nicklen

As a young boy, Paul, a Canadian-born Arctic ecosystem specialist and marine biologist, moved to Baffin Island and spent his childhood among the Inuit people. From them he learned the love of nature, the understanding of icy ecosystems, and the survival skills that have turned him into one of the most successful wildlife and nature photographers of our generation.
As an assignment photographer for National Geographic magazine, Nicklen has produced 20 stories covering a variety of issues related to conservation and natural history—from the slaughter of narwhals to salmon farming to the importance of sea ice and polar ecosystems in this new climate era. Despite the personal peril he often faces while working in some of the planet’s most remote and harsh environments, Nicklen travels constantly in search of meaningful stories that can help touch people’s emotions and help the public at large connect with Earth’s marine and polar realms.
