There cannot be a better way of getting your adrenalin going than sitting in a glass vehicle and a adult polar bear doing its best to get in to you! If you were watching BBC2 last night as I was, you will have been holding your breath unintentionally. The polar bear had that frustrated look of a child at Christmas with a too well wrapped present to get in to!
They are truly wonderful animals to see and their size is dwarfed by the immense landscape that they live in. It is not until you see a human beside a drugged animal that you appreciate just how big they truly are.
Going to see the bears in their natural habitat is high on many people’s agendas and something that needs planning. There is a right time to be there and perhaps one of the most accessible places to see polar bears is Churchill in Canada.
There are two high seasons for bear watching here – and other wildlife. July and August the bears are on land and can be found in the countryside. This is also a wonderful time to see the beluga whales that congregate by the hundred in the Hudson Bay – you can even swim them. The bird life at this time of the year is wonderful, as are the wild flowers.
The other key time to go to Churchill is in October and November, when the polar bears congregate around the Churchill area waiting for the sea ice to form. Once this has happened, they set off hunting seals and they will not be back until the ice starts to break up.
