Grateful for the opportunity to once again travel to Hudson Bay, Canada to observe Polar Bears in their wild habitat. Each fall these bears make their way down the Churchill River towards Hudson Bay, waiting for the ice to form so they can head out and hunt seals. As the arctic sea ice is dwindling, these bears are having a tougher time accessing their number one prey, the Ringed Seal pups. I highly recommend Great Bear Foundation for an educational, respectful and low-impact tour of the Western Hudson Bay Polar Bears. The aurora borealis, fox and hares were a bonus for sure!
