Cold temperatures and snow have descended on the Churchill region and the annual talk of an early freeze-up of the Hudson Bay has started. Wildlife, on the other hand, is plentiful and all about the tundra. Polar bears abound as they wait for ice in the bay. Check out these awesome shots from Natural Habitat Adventures guides in Churchill. We are all keeping a keen eye on the weather and hoping for a south wind to blow the ice that has formed already back north. Stay posted for information on the conditions in the Hudson Bay!

These amazing images from Churchill were taken last week by Natural Habitat Adventures guide Eddy Savage while exploring the tundra and water around the area. This particular group literally found some treasure under a rainbow when they came across a caribou on the tundra. Other incredible beluga whale encounters were quite close up with the zodiacs. A beautiful red fox was quite inquisitive toward the group and posed for some of the best shots we have seen in a long time.
This fantastic photograph of two moose near Caution Creek in Manitoba taken by Rhonda Reid, shows the diversity of wildlife in the Churchill region. We love seeing these snapshots from the more remote areas away from Churchill. With no roads in or out of Churchill and the surrounding tundra, the land is wide open for wildlife to roam as they wish… truly a “wild” frontier.
