Explore.org: Polar Bears Cape West (Wapusk National Park, Cananda)

Wapusk National Park in Canada protects one of the world’s largest concentrations of polar bear maternity dens (where female bears give birth).

Tune in during the months of October and November, when polar bears congregate here at Cape Churchill waiting for the sea ice to form. The bears depend on the sea ice as a platform from which to hunt ringed seals, their main food source.
