Churchill Manitoba: Through the Seasons
#: CBEP   ID: 9154   Section: 033120  
Description:
Beluga whales, polar bears and the Northern Lights - This remote community on the west side of Hudson Bay is the center point of unique nature experiences. In summer, hundreds of beluga (white whales) follow the fish in shallow water as they sing and play around kayaks and divers. The polar bear males roam and snooze on the boulder beaches. With the cold, tourists flock in to see male, female and cub polar bears from tundra buggies while spectacular northern lights dance overhead. Why do these experiences happen here and will they continue as the climate changes? Churchill is adapting with the addition of Polar Bears International Headquarters and sea wall murals created by International artists as they face the loss of the railroad and forecast loss of their bears.
