A home in the polar bear capital of the world
Every year, polar bears gather near Churchill, Manitoba to wait for the sea ice to return. And every year, scientists, photographers, tourists, and members of the media gather there, too—to learn first-hand about the challenges the bears face in a warming climate.
As polar bear central, Churchill has long served as a launch pad for Polar Bears International’s conservation and outreach efforts—and now we have a public center where people can come in and learn about polar bears and polar bear research.
