Where are these polar bears snuggling? Today's mystery wilderness photo is from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, in northeast Alaska.

This great, wild frontier is often called the crown jewel of our nation's refuge system.

As the nation's largest wildlife refuge, this area is a home to Arctic species like caribou, polar bears, wolves and Arctic foxes, and also hosts migratory species like snow geese, peregrine falcons and tundra swans.

This unique place also remains one of the most pristine and diverse on earth, with undisturbed lagoons, coastal areas, tundra plains, boreal forest, and the mountainous Brooks Range.

Take action to help us save the Arctic from drilling!
