In Pictures: The Arctic Sunrise in the Barents Sea
We are currently in the Barents Sea documenting the stunning beauty and pristine environment of the Bear Island which has the biggest seabird colony in the northern hemisphere with 33 species nesting on the island. Statoil, the Norwegian state-owned company, is planning to drill in the area after the Norwegian government issued new licenses for drilling close to the island. These photos taken this month by onboard photographer Will Rose show the amazing beauty and wildlife of the island.
