Video: The Polar Bear Whisperer

Churchill, Canada is a small town that has a big reputation for being the place to spot polar bears in the wild. Recently, adventure travel legend Richard Bangs made the journey to that remote village where he metย Andy MacPherson, a local guide who has earned himself a reputation as the Polar Bear Whisperer. The video below introduces us to Andy and gives us an idea of how he interacts with the bears that remain the kinds of the Arctic even as we further encroach on their territory.

I havenโ€™t had the opportunity to visit Churchill just yet, but it is on my list of places to see. This vide makes me want to go there all the more.
