Photo: Foraging Polar Bear Icy Shoreline Hudson Bay

Walking along the icy shoreline of the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba, a Polar Bear is foraging for a meal.

The ice begins to build up each day around the shoreline of the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba as the winter season moves in, but it is still not thick enough for a Polar Bear. While waiting for the right moment, this Polar will continue foraging along the shoreline in search of any type of food or remnants.

While foraging along the coastline of the Hudson Bay, this Polar Bear could be smelling a seal that is more than twenty miles away. Their sense of smell is very keen and is the most important sense for the survival of a Polar Bear.
