Churchill Photo of the Month- Polar Bear Den

This photograph from a helicopter over Wapusk National Park is a tremendous look at a polar bear den. Sheltered in a stand of spruce trees to break the wind, this is the ideal spot for a sow polar bear to have cubs. This den will be used every year for an extended period.  Wapusk is the prime destination for polar bears to actively den and have cubs.
