"The fate of polar bears are the symbols of struggles against global warming... I have one special polar bear in my heart. She lives in Rotterdam zoo. I visited twice. Each time she swam next to me. I did beg her to swim toward me and told a story about the journey we took to see her. I saw huge black paws in underwater enclosure. Awesome." - Midori Takaki
