What is it like to live among polar bears? In the fall of 2018, polar bear enthusiast Kelly Kandra Hughes spent seven weeks living and volunteering at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, in Churchill, Manitoba. Known as the polar bear capital of the world, Churchill sees over a thousand polar bears descend on it every migration season. During Winter Weekend in Norfolk, on Sunday, February 21, Kelly described her time in Churchill and the surprising truths she learned about eco-tourism and life in sub-arctic Canada. This program is a recording of Kelly’s live Zoom talk.
