Polar Bear Capital of the World

By Linda Tancs

Churchill, Manitoba, is one place in the world where you can feel emboldened to get up close and personal with a polar bear.  It is, after all, one of the few developed areas where the bears can be observed in their natural habitat, some calling this Canadian province the polar bear capital of the world.  October and November mark the prime viewing season, when polar bears migrate from the tundra to icy Hudson Bay to snack on seals.  Viewing options include a tundra vehicle tour, a stay at a wilderness lodge along the migration route, or a guided nature walk.  Don’t worry–bad actors are detained in polar bear “jail” or trapped.
