In two weeks I’ll be back on the tundra in Churchill, Manitoba helping out our friends from Polar Bears International as we broadcast into classrooms from all around the world. We’ll stay at the lodge (see picture to the left) and I bet it will look a lot more like winter by then.
The polar bears do come pretty close to the tundra buggies though as you can see in the picture to the right. They are very curious animals and have an amazing sense of smell. On occasion, they will come extremely close to the buggy and you get some really cool pictures.
Take a look at the picture below that I took last year from the back of the tundra buggy. Look closely.
What do you think that polar bear is thinking? I’d love to hear your “captions” for the picture below. Leave your creative captions in the comments section.
Just to help give you some idea of where this is, check out the short video. The polar bear is actually coming under the tundra buggy and we’re seeing the bear through a grate on the back deck of the buggy.
