October 2014 Polar Bear Trip

We made it: Churchill!

Park ISAMR

Today we got off the train, and were greeted by a documentary team, who are filming us for their mini-series on Churchill, and headed off to a few museums to learn about the culture of the area. 

We then went to the CNSC where Heidi gave us an orientation for the centre and then we got some lunch. Then we got to put our stuff in our rooms and freshen up and do some preparation before we did some Science on the tundra! We got to see some life that lives in the ponds around the CNSC (don't worry we had a bear guard). 

After dinner we heard a research talk from Dr. Jane Waterman, teaching us some polar bear biology before we saw them tomorrow on the tundra. Next we worked to prepare ourselves for the day out on the tundra buggy tomorrow! 

We went to bed nice and early to get lots of sleep before our long next day.
