Prepping for Polar Bears: Best Books on the King of the Arctic
Polar bear pro Annie Van Dinther is back with more resources to help you prepare for your fall Churchill polar bear adventure…or simply to learn more about these incredible Arctic dwellers, so wondrously adapted to living on sea ice and eking out an existence in one of the harshest environments on Earth. One valuable way to get the most out of your polar bear expedition is to gain some context ahead of time, including reading up on this extraordinary species. Did you know, for example, that the polar bear is classified as a marine mammal? Or that its outer guard hairs are actually hollow and transparent? There’s lots to learn about polar bears, and plenty of books out there about them, including some gorgeous coffee table selections filled with inspiring photos. Annie will present her top reading recommendations. And whether you’re headed to the Canadian tundra with us this fall or merely dreaming (for now) of being among the bears, you’re sure to come away with titles to delve into that will further animate your interest in the King of the Arctic.
