Last year, the DEN teamed up with Polar Bears International to bring your students a series of webcasts from Churchill, Manitoba to learn about polar bears and their environment. Well, those opportunities are back in 2014. Tundra Connections conduct LIVE, free broadcasts from the tundra during the annual polar bear migration in Churchill.
