Polar Bear

Why Endangered: Listed in 2008 as a threatened species under the Endangered
Species Act, partly due to melting tundra.

Best Place to See: Town of Churchill, Hudson Bay, Manitoba, Canada.

The Viewing: Of all the threatened animals on earth, the polar bear is the only
one you go to town to see. Some 900 polar bears migrate through the small town of Churchill,
Manitoba, each year, and tourists converge to see them in off-road tundra buggies the size of
school buses. Go in October and November, when the bears hunt for seal on the frozen water of the
Hudson Bay.
