Churchillpolarbears.org wish you all a memorable International Polar Bear Day. Churchill is recovering from economic strife following no train service for over a year and a half. Now with the connection to the south restored, a bright future is in store for Churchill and the surrounding communities. Polar bear populations appear healthy over the past few years and more people will be able to journey to the Polar Bear Capital of the World!
Looking ahead to the new year of 2018. Drew Hamilton photo.
