These two captivating images from Nunavut embrace the feel of the region so much. The emptiness of the openness of the Arctic is unmatched and soothes the soul when you look deep into the landscape. The gateway to the Arctic, Churchill, is just the frontier of this wide open and wild land and sea. A trip to this region of the planet will truly restore one’s love of nature and wildlife! Enjoy.
Baby beluga pops out of the Churchill River just in time for this selfie. Jossum McLean photo.
Beluga whale action in the Churchill River and Hudson Bay is ramping up with incredible photo opportunities happening on a daily basis! This image from Sea North Tours guide Jossum McLean is a rare look at a beluga baby spy-hopping out of the water to get a look at the zodiac and passengers. As a guide in Churchill Summer season for over ten years, I rarely was able to time this phenomenon and capture the moment with my camera. What an amazing shot from Churchill!
This polar bear wandered right up to this front door of a housing building in Churchill. Benjamin Oman took this shot while the bear was contemplating its next move. Churchill is a wild town and residents and visitors need to always be aware, even more in summer months when bears tend to move around town and people often let their guard down. Polar Bear Alert will relocate the bear as they do in polar bear season. Give them a call if you see a bear near or in town at 204-675-2327!
