Polar Bears and Climate Change – CNN Video interviews polar bear veterans at Seal River Heritage Lodge
Is climate change reducing the world’s polar bear population? There’s no question the polar bear’s favored environment – the arctic sea ice – is melting, yet the polar bear population on Canada’s Hudson Bay seems to be thriving right now. Why?
CNN producer Jessica Ellis took a film crew to Churchill Wild’s Seal River Heritage Lodge to get the answers from some veteran polar bear men including Churchill Wild co-owner Mike Reimer, wildlife guide Andy MacPherson and professional photographer Dennis Fast.
We think you’ll find their answers both interesting and informative. Click the image above to watch the recent CNN Video Feature about Polar Bears and Climate Change.
A polar bear photo safari for the discerning photographer!
Churchill Wild has added a new ecotour to it’s offerings, this one specially designed for discerning wildlife photographers. The Polar Bear Photo Safari takes place in October and November, which is prime polar bear season – a time when the polar bears begin to gather in large numbers as they wait for Hudson Bay to freeze so they can begin their annual hunt.
Photographers will fly into the heart of polar bear country and stay at Churchill Wild’s remote Seal River Heritage Lodge on the Hudson Bay Coast, where Arctic wildlife including polar bears, caribou, arctic fox and more can be photographed at ground level in a pristine untrammeled wilderness with a backdrop of incredible seascapes and landscapes. And let’s not forget the northern lights, which can often be spectacular at this time of year!
And of course you’ll also be treated to the finest food and wine in the arctic! If you’re a photographer and you’ve never trekked the tundra with the polar bears, you’re going to love this!
