Polar Bear Week falls during the annual polar bear migration in Churchill, Canada, where Polar Bears gather to wait for the Hudson Bay to freeze so they can return to hunting seals. They will have had very little to eat since the spring ice thaw, so freezing of the ice is critical for them.
As temperatures dip colder, remember the Polar Bears rely on the cold weather to freeze the ice so they can eat. Climate change directly impacts their ability to survive.
Bring on the cold temps! And put on another sweater if you need to stay warm.
Here are some pics from Churchill I took a few years back. Enjoy!
