This Polar Bear strolls majestically through its habitat. This species thrives in the harsh tundra landscape found in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area near Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba. This is also a popular tourist location to come and see the Polar Bears in their natural habitat.

Polar Bears are in danger of extinction due to loss of habitat and global warming. They have become the poster child for the consistent rise in temperature of the oceans and many believe that if more is not done to take care of them and protect their way of life then they will disappear forever. Every year it seems as if less and less snow and ice covers the ground of their tundra habitat where they live, so conservation and responsible tourism is important.

The best time to see the Polar Bears in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area is during late fall/early winter when they come out on to the tundra to wait for the sea ice to form in Hudson Bay as the weather gets colder. As the ice forms then they will head out and spend the winter hunting seal. Many companies offer tours at this time of year so that people will be able to see the Polar Bears walking in their habitat, such as this Polar Bear is doing here.
