polar bears: frozen planet - searching for a mate

Join us on a virtual trip on a Tundra Buggy to see the polar bear migration near Churchill, Manitoba with Polar Bears International and Frontiers North Adventures.

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.
