Are You Ready for Your Close-up? Polar Bear Cam Has Launched!
It’s that time of year again, and polar bears are gathering along the Hudson Bay to wait for ice to form. As the temperatures drop, their pathway to open water (and prime seal hunting grounds) will open, but in the meantime, they are in a state known as “walking hibernation.” Our friends at Polar Bears International have some interesting tips on everyday changes we can make to ensure the ice gets to these hungry bears as quickly as possible.
They’ve also helped us establish three live cams for viewing the bears while they wait. The Tundra Lodge is strategically placed to allow optimal bear viewing, and the tundra buggy cam gives viewers a rare mobile viewing opportunity. Viewers also have access to the Wapusk National Park to watch bears at Cape Churchill, and opportunities to join live chats with climate change experts.
Catch a cool moment? Send us a screen grab at email@example.com and we’ll share them on our blog.
Never stop learning,
