The congregation of the Polar Bears takes place around Churchill, Manitoba along the shores of the Hudson Bay waiting for winter to arrive and many of the them are still very tired. This Polar Bear finds the top of the rock a great place to rest where he can look out over the tundra for any sign of intruders.
Once the pack ice builds up around the Hudson Bay in Manitoba, the Polar Bears do not seem nearly as tired as they have better fish to fry, like trying to capture some ringed seals. In the meantime, a Polar Bear may be seen resting anywhere across the tundra landscape and many tourists board the tundra buggy tours to observe these beautiful animals in their natural environment.
