Polar Bear Week Snapshot Contest!

Polar Bear Week is coming! We’re dedicating November 1-7 to celebrate the Arctic animal and help preserve their environment. We’ve partnered with Polar Bears International to bring you our series of Polar Bear Cams streaming live from the Churchill tundra. And PBI’s got a ton of activities and live chats lined up, plus tips you can try to help save the polar bears in your everyday life.

For Explore, Polar Bear Week is all about contests, sharing moments (and prizes). So we’re kicking things off with a snapshot contest!

Simply log in with your explore account, use the snapshot camera feature and post your shot in the comments below any of the Churchill Polar Bear Cams! We’ll be giving out prizes for many of your snapshots, so click and share to win!
