Dorota Walkoski of Great White Bear Tours captured this harbinger of spring image in Churchill. Caribou, snow geese and Canada geese fill the landscape and feed on the bounty which the north provides this time of year! Bountiful Churchill summer will be upon us soon and avid explorers will flock to town for birding excursions, beluga whale charters and tundra exploring in search of fox, polar bears, Arctic hare and even wolves. This summer on the Hudson Bay is shaping up to be one of the most exciting in recent years. Stay posted for all the news and photos from the north!
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!
