A Year in the Life of a Polar Bear

At Nat Hab, fall is typically defined by “polar bear season,” when we take several hundred guests to view the King of the Arctic on the wild tundra in Churchill, Manitoba. This has certainly been true for Annie Van Dinther, who has guided dozens of polar bear expeditions along Canada’s Hudson Bay. This year, however, Annie says she “feels like a migratory species that forgot to migrate.” Due to COVID-19, Americans can’t head north of the border, and our polar bear tours are on hiatus. But that hasn’t stopped the bears’ movements—they’re massing in Churchill as usual, waiting for the pack ice to form and the start of their winter hunting season—a pattern that has defined their lives for centuries. Join Annie for a virtual journey into the polar bear’s world as she presents a year in the life of the Arctic’s most charismatic carnivore. Learn why ice is imperative for hunting, how bears breed and give birth, what life on land looks like in a rapidly warming Arctic, and more.
