In November, 2019, I traveled to Churchill, Manitoba, Canada for an expedition to two wilderness lodges owned by Churchill Wild.
Churchill is a unique geographic locations as it has several fresh water rivers that feed into Hudson Bay which is part of the Arctic Ocean. What this means is that the bay at Churchill tends to freeze earlier than other places. What this means is that Polar Bears congregate at Churchill during a six week "season" as they learned over the millennia that this is the quickest location to get to the sea ice, which is where the seals that make up the majority of their diet in the winter live.
This was my fifth time in Churchill and I was looking for the great white bears....the story continues in the galleries.
