Close Encounters with Churchill’s Polar Bears – A Conservation Travel Experience
Remember when you were young? Did you play outside? Did you explore? Children have an amazing sense of wonder when they're immersed in nature. Most of us tend to lose it as adults. But when you meet the polar bears of Churchill, it comes flooding back. When you watch this short video, you’ll get a feel for the childlike wonder that a polar bear encounter in Churchill offers.
In recent years, polar bears have faced significant challenges as climate change has started to melt their sea ice habitat. In this video, Nat Hab founder and president Ben Bressler discusses the beauty and plight of these majestic carnivores.
