Wrangel Island, a federal nature reserve, is an isolated sanctuary lying off Arctic Russia containing 7,500 square kilometers of harsh tundra and soaring mountains. Its human inhabitants comprise a handful of rangers plus, in summer, a dozen or so researchers. Sergey Gorshkov returned to the island over the course of three years to document the iconic species - snowy owls, Arctic fox, polar bears and snow geese - along with the sweeping landscapes, evidence of past human habitation and other species of wildlife occupying this remote location. This special place is difficult to access both physically and politically, Sergey's insightful coverage of the island is rare and personal.
