Churchill Sunday Photos

These photos from Churchill photographer Rhonda Reid are from this past week. The prodigious Churchill wildlife is increasing as the region starts to come out of winters freeze. Even though snow fell a few days ago it won’t be long before life in all forms blooms and reveals itself around the tundra. Looking forward to more images as wildlife arrives all around the region.

Churchill Video of the Week – Belugas

Wonderful images of the thousands of active beluga whales that migrate south to the Churchill River and surrounding estuaries. This amazing time of year in the north is unmatched for all around natural beauty. From the magnificent belugas to the throngs of migratory birds, tundra wildflowers, awesome polar bears and other northern wildlife species and even the possibility of viewing the iconic northern lights later in the season, Churchill has it all in the Arctic summertime!
