Remote, restricted and protected Wrangel Island is difficult to reach geographically and politically. This is not an issue for the thousands of snow geese that nest on the island each spring- over 120,000 birds gather, mate and raise their goslings in the only nesting colony in Asia. Migratory geese from Russia, Canada and the United States begin to nest on Wrangel as soon as weather and snow melt permits, usually in May. Sergey Gorshkov photographed the full cycle of life on the island. From courtship and nesting to protecting their eggs and young from marauding Arctic foxes, this is a story of Arctic survival.
