The Polar Bear Photo Gallery is a collection of my images captured primarily in the Canadian Arctic and Svalbard, Norway. Time was spent in the Wapusk National Park which is near Churchill, Manitoba, Canada along the coast of the Hudson Bay.
Wapusk is the Cree word for “white bear”, and as the meaning indicates, the 11,475-square-kilometre (4,430 sq mi) park protects one of the world’s largest known polar bear maternity denning areas. It includes a large part of the Hudson Bay Lowlands, a subarctic region bordering Hudson Bay that is mostly muskeg and wet peat-lands. It is one of the wildest and most remote of Canadian landscapes.The Wapusk National Park is a significant maternity denning area for the polar bear, Ursus maritimus.
