Polar bear activity in and around Churchill has been light due to the continued warm weather keeping the polar bears close to the Hudson Bay. While bear numbers have remained fairly consistent over the past few weeks only one polar bear has been incarcerated in the holding facility. We expect that stat to increase as the summer begin to wane and polar bear season approaches. These recent photos of polar bears enjoying the Churchill summer indicate a good seal hunting season out on the pack ice. The presence of a healthy wolf on the tundra also indicates the wildlife ecosystem in the Churchill region is healthy.

Bird numbers have also been extremely good and everyone is excited about the 2017 polar bear season just a couple of months away.
