Polar bear warning at Churchill, Hudson Bay, Canada

Year: 2013 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
Churchill (Inuit: Kuugjuaq) is a town on the West shore of Hudson Bay in Manitoba, Canada. It is most famous for the many polar bears that move toward the shore from inland in the autumn, leading to the nickname "Polar Bear Capital of the World" that has helped its growing tourism industry. There is no other place in the world, where so many photos of polar bears have been taken than in Churchill.
