Meet the King of the Arctic
Tue March 5, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Polar bear expeditions in Churchill have been a centerpiece of Nat Hab’s nature travel portfolio for 30 years. Each fall, dozens of bears congregate around this small northern Manitoba town on the edge of Hudson Bay, waiting for the sea ice to form and their winter seal-hunting season to begin. And there’s no better time to see the premier denizen of the Arctic than right now, as its habitat is changing rapidly. Join Nat Hab founder and president Ben Bressler and Court Whelan, Expedition Leader and Director of Sustainability, for a virtual visit to the polar bear’s realm. Hear why our polar bear adventures are Nat Hab’s most popular trips, and get an update on the status of the North’s largest carnivore as you learn about WWF’s work to protect polar bears and their threatened environment. Get details about Nat Hab’s varied polar bear expeditions including our Classic Polar Adventure based in Churchill, our Tundra Lodge round-the-clock immersion in the polar bear’s habitat, our Churchill Arctic Family Adventure, and the Ultimate Churchill experience featuring a helicopter flight over the tundra and Hudson Bay and a visit to a vacant polar bear den! While polar bears are the focus of this webinar, you’ll get a glimpse of Churchill’s unique northern culture, too, which features prominently on all our polar bear trips.
