Every Fall, Churchill’s polar bears gather along the shores of Hudson Bay to wait for the ice to form so they can return to their seal-hunting grounds. During that time, they’re in a state known as walking hibernation. But freeze-ups are coming later each year—and melt-offs sooner—straining the limits of their fat reserves. That’s why this population is considered the most endangered. It’s up to us to take action to help them.

What is a Tundra Buggy?

A Tundra Buggy is a purpose built, all-terrain vehicle designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the Arctic. Tundra Buggies have large wheels and a high ground clearance which allows them to navigate through small streams and snow drifts. The height of the Tundra Buggy also ensures that guests inside the cabin are safe from intruding polar bears. When standing on their hind legs, polar bears can reach nearly 11 feet.

Tundra Buggies are stationed at Churchill, Canada near Hudson Bay which is known as the "Polar Bear Capital of the World."

The polar bear cameras you are viewing are situated on the Tundra Buggy Lodge. The lodge consists of five buggies linked together like a train. There is a staff quarters, dining area, supply cart, and two carts for guests. We hope the Tundra Buggy Lodge Polar Bear Cameras will bring you up close and personal with all the action in Churchill.
