We landed in Churchill about an hour ago and it took no time at all for me to see my first polar bear. But, unfortunately, the bear that we saw was suspended high up in the air from a helicopter. He was on his way to Polar Bear Jail - I suspect to got a little too close to somewhere he shouldn't have been.
As soon as we arrived in the airport, we were greeted by Sarah and Amy from Polar Bears International. They mentioned a sad experience that they had last night - seeing about eight large male bears eating old, fermented grains near the old dump.
So, the thing I'm already struggling with is whether the bears are getting in our way or whether we're getting in the way of the bears...
