Photo: Arctic Polar Bear Animal Hudson Bay Canada

An Arctic Polar Bear walks on the icy fringes of Hudson Bay and glances over to where the camera is located. This is an animal that is endangered and is rapidly losing its habitat in areas like Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba, northern Canada.

An Arctic Polar Bear, proper name Ursus maritimus, takes a walk along the icy icy shores of Hudson Bay in Canada and casually looks over to where the picture is being taken. Churchill, Manitoba has the unofficial name of the 'Polar Bear capital of the world' because the animals move towards the shore of Hudson Bay in this region in Autumn and this is a big tourist draw for the town.

Polar Bears are found mostly in the Arctic Circle, but due to climate change and global warming, they are rapidly losing their habitat. It is well adapted for living and moving across icy regions such as this one, however, if they lose more of their habitat and the earth continues to warm up, conservationists are concerned that the Polar Bear may end up extinct.
