In mid-October, some hundreds of polar bears begin arriving in Churchill, Manitoba, the polar bear capital of the world. The bears are waiting for the ice to come to Hudson Bay so they can hunt for their primary food source, seals. Normally these bears are solitary, but this time of year is an annual social engagement for them and the bears interact with each other. From the vantage point of a tundra buggy, you'll view these magnificent animals in their natural surroundings. John Demboski, PhD, curator of vertebrate zoology, will be your expert guide. Because polar bears are considered a species of concern internationally, opportunities to see them are limited. Although this trip is a year way, register now because this trip will fill up quickly.
