Photo: Manitoba Polar Bear Tundra Buggy Tours

A polar bear, only 11 months old, is so curious about the tundra buggy that is rolling over his habitat that he has come in investigate and puts his paws up on the wheels. This is in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area in Hudson Bay, Manitoba.

A polar bear comes to explore the tundra buggy in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area in Hudson Bay, Manitoba and those on the tour in the tundra buggy get an up close and personal look at the bear as he leans his paws on the tires and stares up at them. This affords a glimpse of a vulnerable species in its natural habitat and is a glimpse that will become more and more elusive as time goes on unless something is done to help the polar bear survive in the increasingly warmer arctic.

Tourists can take tours on one of these tundra buggies to see the polar bears in their native habitat but protected in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area in Churchill, Manitoba, and this area works hard to protect polar bears so that they do not become extinct. ... continue below the picture...

... This polar bear is so curious because he is still a young bear and has an inquisitive nature. As the bears grow up they can become more wary of humans and human interaction.

The polar bear is classified as vulnerable, but many are working to get it put on the endangered species list as environmental groups believe they are in severe danger of becoming extinct. Five out of the nineteen polar bear sub-populations are in decline at the moment and the main culprit used to be hunting, but global warming is now mostly to blame. If they are listed as endangered they will be more protected and a sight such as this one with people able to see them and appreciate them in their natural environment will not become less and less common.
