    Whoo-Hoo! First time I voted in a long time, and Mama Polar Bear and her Cubs was the sweetest, most loving photo….
    I also loved the Milkey Way one…WOW! And the bear in the tree…LOL
    This is one of my favorite, if not most favorite, of all animal and wildlife charities. Thank you, Defenders! You help out our wolves, bears… and national parks, and so many other forms of wildlife! God Bless.

    Dear DOW:

    The photos on your website & the winners are exquisite! Some of them almost take my breath away. The polar bear mother with her cubs is truly a winner! The scenes are surreal, and I am amazed at the array of beautiful colors. It was almost as if you are right there. Thank you for your beautiful photos and for all your hard work for the protection of our beautiful wildlife.
