As the snow falls around the Churchill Wildlife Management Area in Manitoba, Canada, a Polar Bear continues on his journey towards the shores of the Hudson Bay. The snow clouds sit fairly low across the sky, making the tundra area appear hazy.
Winter is what this Polar Bear adores and he seems quite content as he hoofs it across the icy tundra in Churchill, Manitoba. The colder the temperature gets and the more ice that builds up on the Hudson Bay is what keeps this Polar Bear alive and strong as he can then easily head out on the Hudson Bay to trap some ringed seals.On a true winter day around Churchill, Manitoba, it can be hard to see a Polar Bear especially when the snow is whipped around by a strong wind and the entire landscape becomes blanketed.
The creamy, yellowish white coloring of their fur provides excellent camouflage for a Polar Bear during the winter, not that they need any protection as they are one of the world's largest carnivores.
Polar Bear watching around Churchill, Manitoba is a dream come true for many people and that is why a Tundra Buggy Tour should be booked well in advance before even making the journey to Churchill. Thousands of people visit Churchill during the winter just to be able to see a Polar Bear roaming freely in the wilderness as they search for food that they need to stock up on before the warmer weather arrives.
