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 November 2013, a CNN news crew joined a Nat Habpolar bear photography trip in Churchill. Watch as they encounter their first polar bear on the tundra from one of our giant Polar Rovers. You’ll also hear interviews with Brad Josephs, NHA photography guide.
In recent years, polar bears have faced significant challenges as climate change has started to melt their sea ice home. In this polar bear video, Nat Hab founder and director Ben Bressler discusses the beauty and the plight of these majestic creatures.
