Video: Polar Bear Play

Hundreds of polar bears gather on the coast of the Hudson Bay every autumn to await the inevitable freezing of the bay. When the ice thickens, the polar bears venture out to hunt Arctic seal and gain sustenance for the long winter ahead. Watch a pair of polar bears in Manitoba as they interact with each other and their environment. Each year, we bring travelers to snowy Churchill to observe these fascinating creatures.
