Polar bears of Churchill
Many, many thanks to Polar Bears International for inviting me on the trip of a lifetime.
We had great conditions, one day it was sunny and the other was overcast and snowing. Both perfect days of weather.
On the first trip we encountered 26 bears and the next outing we were fortunate to see over 40. I use the term encounter because some of the bears may have been seen multiple times.
It is a truly humbling experience to see not only the bears but to be in their environment.
Unfortunately the ice is breaking up earlier and not freezing until much later. I was told that just ten years ago the Hudson Bay would have already frozen and the bears would have been gone.
