Tundra Connections in Full Swing-Polar Bear Season Nearing
It’s nearly time to head to Churchill, Manitoba for my annual pilgrimage to the best place on the planet to get close and document the largest carnivore known to man, the polar bear. I’ve been fortunate to have spent nearly twenty consecutive Novembers in this little town on the edge of what is considered the subarctic. About half of those years I’ve been guiding for Frontiers North Adventures, one of the finest ecotourism companies doing business today and most definitely the best working out of Churchill.
The season has actually already started for my colleagues at Polar Bears International. Krista Wright, BJ Kirschhoffer, Jane Kudrna Arnold, Julene Reed and Kathy Foat who are already out on the tundra preparing for Tundra Connections 2011 . Tundra Connections is an annual web cast hosted by Polar Bears International and sponsored by many great organizations including Frontiers North Adventures. Through the magic of the internet Tundra Connections brings you topics affecting the polar bears and all the arctic with notable dignitaries such as Dr. Steven Amstrup, Sr. Scientist for PBI, Dr. Tom Smith, Associate Professor of Plant and Wildlife Sciences, Brigham Young University and Kassie Siegel, Climate Law Institute Director, Center of Biological Diversity to name just a few.
