This Churchill Arctic Photo of the Week comes from the ice around Rankin Inlet where the little things are what make up a way of life in the north. This shot of Ava Ningeocheak ice fishing brings a sense of calm and longing for the old days when things moved a little more slowly in the south. Enjoy!
Gotta love this phenomenal shot of a humpback whale tail fluke ad the iconic iceberg in the distance. Otherworldly! Greenland is very much like another planet and very worthy of preserving for the future . Join World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in their crusade to preserve the natural world for generations to come!
Keep your eyes on the northern skies tonight and Friday night, as some fiery Northern Lights will be poised to for a heightened display as a result of solar flare activity sending particles into our atmosphere. For those that are not far enough north, here’s the photo of the week with aurora borealis high in the sky above the southern Northwest Territories.
Wishing all the mothers in the world a happy and memorable Mother’s Day from all of us at Churchillpolarbears.org! Enjoy!
Russia has been active at exploring and settling the Arctic for many decades. This is one of the earliest vehicles to transport people in the area and quite the relic. How fun would it be to zip around the snowfields in this little number? These are not too far off from the original polar bear viewing vehicles from Churchill. The huge propeller fan on the back might be a deterrent for polar bears however!
