Polar Bear Season Is Here!

A watchful mother polar bear monitors the surroundings with her two COY's (cubs of the year) at her feet on a snowy afternoon in Churchill. The Polar Bear Cams with our partners Explore.org and Frontiers North Adventures are live now, letting you follow the annual gathering of polar bears on the coast of Hudson Bay.

This week, Alysa McCall, one of our staff scientists, will begin the season’s education and outreach efforts with a series of live chats. You can catch her on our Polar Bear TV at the dates and times shown.
