While Churchill, Manitoba is internationally known as the ‘Polar Bear Capital of the World’ and ‘Beluga Capital of the World’, our community is truly a four season wildlife destination!
Located along the treeline or the northern edge of the Boreal Forest, Churchill attracts arctic and boreal species of wildlife, birds and plants. Commonly seen species include: Arctic and Red Foxes, Arctic Hare, Caribou, Gyr Falcons, Snowy Owls, Ptarmigan and even the occasional Lemming!
Human presence in the Churchill area dates as far back as 1700 BC. Tent rings, food caches and kayak stands remain as evidence of the Pre-Dorset, Dorset and Inuit peoples that used this area as seasonal hunting grounds for thousands for years.
Churchill has since come along way!
