Texas State Aquarium Polar Exhibit Explores Wildlife

An exhibit of stunning photographs taken by National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen will be on display at the Texas State Aquarium through Sept. 3. Access is included with admission or membership.

The exhibit “Polar Obsession” features up-close images of wildlife taken in the Arctic and Antarctic. Nicklen grew up in a small Inuit community in the Canadian arctic, where he developed a passion for the region’s wildlife. The results of his lifelong passion are part of a traveling exhibit organized by the National Geographic Society.

Nicklen devotes his photographic career to taking rare, up-close photos of polar species in their home environments. Some of his images have dispelled myths about wildlife, revealing rarely seen behaviors. His photos document the lives of elephant and leopard seals, whales, walruses, narwhals, polar bears, penguins, petrels, tiny krill, and more.

The 57 photos in the exhibit are drawn from 150 images in Nicklen’s National Geographic book “Polar Obsession.”
