Churchill polar bears

I arrived in Churchill Canada today, to work with Polar Bears International on their Tundra Connections project – a multimedia climate change extravaganza!

We went for a drive in the PBI van and saw over a dozen polar bears in an hour – some just on the edge of town. They are congregating at the shore, waiting for Hudson Bay to freeze over so they can go out on the sea ice to hunt. The freeze is happening very late this year, but more on that later.  For now, I just wanted to share some of what I saw today.  These animals are just huge and amazing and so at home in this extreme environment.
