A lounging polar bear plays with some kelp on the Precambrian shield by the Hudson Bay in Churchill. Bears are patiently waiting for the fall polar bear season when the Hudson Bay will slowly freeze-up and seal hunting season will begin!
This polar bear wandered right up to this front door of a housing building in Churchill. Benjamin Oman took this shot while the bear was contemplating its next move. Churchill is a wild town and residents and visitors need to always be aware, even more in summer months when bears tend to move around town and people often let their guard down. Polar Bear Alert will relocate the bear as they do in polar bear season. Give them a call if you see a bear near or in town at 204-675-2327!
We’re just starting to get the itch for Churchill’s polar bear season even though Churchill Summer season has not even started as of yet. And, although there’s a chance to see the King of the North in the summer months, once October and November roll around, polar bears rule the land in and around Churchill. With that yearning tugging at our souls, we thought it would be fun to publish some of the best images from polar bear seasons of the past. These should inspire all to venture to the Polar Bear Capital of the World, Churchill, Manitoba to see these incredible animals!
Until then, stay posted for news and updates from Churchill toward the end of the month. We cannot wait to see what this summer reveals around Churchill! It should be another wild season with unexpected happenings in the far north.
Some iconic images from the north look like they could be from past centuries. Not much in the landscape or the clothing has changed. The timelessness of the Arctic culture and setting will endure for a long time to come. With all the recent changes in Churchill, the land and the aura of the frontier town remain timeless.We hope the wildlife and especially the dynamic Hudson Bay polar bear population.
