The Polar Bear
On the western shore of Hudson Bay, it’s sometimes hard to remember that polar bears are supposed to be going extinct.
Every fall, hundreds of bears gather near Churchill, Man., waiting for the bay to freeze so that they can head out onto the ice to hunt for seals.
During this period, people in town treat polar bears more like nuisances than a sentinel species whose condition is regarded as the clearest evidence of the coming Global Climate apocalypse.
