Polar Bear Cam Brings Cuddly Carnivores Into Our Living Room

I'm a sucker for great wildlife videos, but even more so when they're actually streaming live. The video below is sent back to us from live cameras aboard a Tundra Buggy in Churchill, Manitoba. The buggy goes out each and every day looking for polar bears and other animal that wander the area. I was tipped off to this live cam by reader Alan Curr, who discovered it on National Geographic's site, who recommend watching it between 7:00 AM and 4:30 PM, or generally when the sun is up.

If you don't see any bears wandering around when the camera is running, be patient. They're bound to show up again. When I first logged in, there were two bears wrestling and chasing each other around. It was quite fun to watch, and I'm sure you'll be able to see similar activity.

The camera is brought to us by Explore.org, Polar Bears International, and Frontiers North.

As Canadians, we are actually in a debate right now for changing one of our National images from the Beaver, to the Polar Bear. Most of those amazing animals wander our far north and we are priviledged that this is so.
