10 Reasons That Prove Polar Bears are Absolute Arctic Royalty

We wish every day could be International Polar Bear Day…

Whether they’re hunting seals on the pack ice, battling one another for supremacy, nurturing cubs on the tundra, or cashing in for Coca-Cola as perennial marketing stars, polar bears have long been celebrated for their ferocity, beauty and power.

Though Feb. 27, 2019 is officially International Polar Bear Day, Natural Habitat Adventures connects travelers with this Arctic icon every day each October and November in Churchill, Manitoba as part of its signature Polar Bear Adventures. Alongside expert naturalist Expedition Leaders, guests can get up close and personal with the North's biggest carnivore by way of Nat Hab’s custom-built Polar Rovers. Or, choose to stay at the private Tundra Lodge for an immersion in the bears' realm around the clock.

In honor of International Polar Bear Day, and using photographs taken by both guests and guides on actual Nat Hab trips, here are 10 reasons why we should all be worshiping the almighty Kings and Queens of the Arctic on Feb. 27:

1. Polar bears have zero shame about letting it all hang out.

2. Their “I am curious” face is indistinguishable from their “I want to eat you” face, and you’ve got to respect that (hint: it’s always about eating you).

3. Even from the comfort and safety of a Polar Rover, their mere presence commands space and respect.

4. They’re loud and proud champions of single parents everywhere.

5. They’re completely adorable – even between bath days.

6. The polar ice caps are melting, and that’s really emotional for them, so they need your support.

7. They’re so soft and snuggly, they can’t even resist each other.

8. These abominable snow bears have indomitable spirits.
