A dog becomes the real man’s best friend, especially when you live at one of the most remote corners of the world. These are dogs of Bely Island located near the Yamal Peninsula in Siberia. They risk their lives chasing a hungry polar bear away from Siberian weather station. They are heroes who protect humans of the isolated spot from the powerful beast.
Located in the Philippine Sea, and 222.7 miles (358 km) south of central Tokyo, Aogashima also has a village that is home to around 200 people. This volcanic island has erupted and even killed some of the islanders, but still people spend their lives there. Fishing and farming are some of the more common activities.
