Churchill Polar Bears, 7th November 2017

These pictures were taken on a Tundra Buggy with the company Frontiers North. There are some who regard these large off road vehicles as the embodiment of industrial tourism, but in my view they at a way of confining the impact of tourism to a confined area, and of managing numbers. Later in this trip, I took a similar tour with a rival company and had a somewhat negative experience, so I would suggest that Frontiers North is the most considerate and professional such outfit. Below, you can see the rather gruesome spectacle we observed of a silver fox preying on a smaller arctic fox. This second day of my visit to Churchill was the time when I saw by far the most bears: after this, numbers declined markedly as they moved onto the partially frozen Bay.
