Emperors of the Ice with Paul Nicklen - TONIGHT
Whether he’s swimming with leopard seals in Antarctica or mastering aerial shots from his ultralight plane, PAUL NICKLEN has made a specialty of photographing the planet’s polar regions. Growing up among the Inuit in Canada and working as a biologist in the Northwest Territories habituated him to extreme conditions. A viral phenomenon (his YouTube videos have received millions of hits), Nicklen dove beneath Antarctic ice for a feature story on emperor penguins for the November issue of National Geographic (Photo Credit: Paul Nicklen)
