Polar bear hunting seals

I was thrilled to see ravens with the bears. These tough birds, as well as arctic foxes, travel hundreds of miles onto the pack ice to scavenge seal kills. I wonder if the ravens help the bears find breathing holes—I bet they do. Brad Josephs photo.

It’s seal hunting season on the Hudson Bay ice pack north of Churchill. After an incredible polar bear season and a frigid last couple of weeks of November, the bears headed onto the ice pack to build their fat reserves for the winter. With northern lights season is underway and the spectacular sights of night will be brought to you in the next few months, we all can’t wait to the beautiful polar bears return in the spring. Enjoy!
