Some rare footage of a polar bear hunting seals on the ice. This video is from the far northern Arctic as you can see by the mountains portrayed. Polar bears display incredible patience while hunting seals on the pack ice. Some researchers have documented the bears covering their black noses with their paws to avoid detection as they lay patiently on the ice near a seal blow hole or den. Because the seal – kill incidents are very infrequent it’s particularly difficult to capture these interactions on film. This one is pretty cool!
Here are five aerial views of Churchill and the surrounding landmarks. Helicopter excursions on Hudson Bay Helicopters are a unique way to view the geography and major landmarks of the Churchill region. Many of the areas can be reached by foot, boat or polar rover though the birds-eye view provides another perspective. Only through this viewpoint can one get an appreciation of the expanse of the land and water in the sub and northern Arctic.
