Churchill, Manitoba is known as the Polar Bear Capital of the World. When author Lori Henry went there in the summer, though, it was the gregarious beluga whales that charmed her.

Churchill: Navigating bugs, belugas and polar bears

Snorkelling with beluga whales was one of the most extraordinary things travel writer Lori Henry has ever done. Plunging into the arctic Hudson Bay waters, she listened to their high pitched “talking” and was startled when the belugas seemed to actually play with her.

That doesn’t mean the author didn’t note seeing a polar bear. She writes, “We left the mouth of the river and headed west around Fort Prince of Wales and into Button Bay, where a polar bear was lounging on a rock less than 100 metres away.” She includes many bear stories from the locals.

Churchill is a subarctic community in northern Manitoba. Situated on the shores of western Hudson Bay, the town of about 1,000 residents sees upwards of 3,000 beluga whales swimming in the Churchill River every summer, and 800-900 polar bears co-exist with the town’s residents and in the nearby Wapusk National Park, where mother bears den. This is one of the largest known polar bear maternity denning areas in the world.

Churchill: Navigating bugs, belugas and polar bears tells the tale of the wildlife, the landscape and the colourful local characters that Lori met in this northern town.
