Photo of the Month - December 2010
Hello Nature Canada,
A long time dream has come true, to visit the polar bears of Churchill, Manitoba and watch these incredible animals roam freely across the tundra. While on a “Tundra Buddy Day Trip” our group was fortunate to view and photograph a mother polar bear and her cub as they made their way across the Tundra.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful photo with us, Dennis! Our staff are all amazed that you managed to capture this elusive and captivating animal.
Polar bears are the world’s largest land predators, and undoubtedly the most majestic creature of the Far North. It is because of this amazing animal that every year nature enthusiasts travel to the small port of Churchill on the western coast of central Canada’s Hudson Bay, simply to catch a glimpse of this beautiful Arctic species.
Today, there are 19 populations of polar bears in the world, most of which are located in Canada, but other populations exist in Alaska, Russia, Greenland and Norway. Churchill, Manitoba is widely known as the polar bear capital of the world as it is a stopover for polar bears on their way north.
Help save the polar bear and tell our government to add the polar bear to the Species At Risk Act.
