Mike Fitz’s Next Stop: Polar Bears

Through the generosity of explore.org, I’m pleased to announce I will embark on a journey to a land of white bears and glowing night skies.

In Churchill, Manitoba, explore.org partners with Polar Bears International, Wapusk National Park of Canada, and the Churchill Northern Studies Centre to provide webcams featuring polar bears and northern lights. While in Churchill, I’ll work to bring you additional live broadcasts and some behind-the-scenes footage of the community. (Be sure to follow explore.org on Periscope and Instagram.)

For me, this will be a journey of discovery and exploration. Although I have extensive experience living alongside brown bears, I’ve never seen a wild polar bear. I’m eager to learn more about these imperiled animals as well as how the community of Churchill has learned to live with and embrace them.

Please join me from Churchill from November 9-18. I look forward to sharing my experience with you.

See you on the tundra!
