We want to share your Churchill Wild photos with the world!

Churchill Wild guests, professional photographers, photo leaders and staff post a large number of photos to Instagram, both on their personal accounts and on the @churchillwildsafaris Instagram page. The album below includes a mixture of photos from all the aforementioned groups and from our own account. You can click on any of the photos in the album and they will open a new window to the photographer or author page.

We love to share photos from our polar bear lodges, especially from guests, so if you’ve taken some great shots with us and have posted them to Instagram, using the tags #churchillwild and #churchillwildsafaris could help you gain more exposure on Instagram through this album.

Also make sure to tag the individual lodge or lodges you were visiting, which include #sealriverheritagelodge, #nanukpolarbearlodge and #dymondlakeecolodge. We’ll be creating Instagram feeds for all three lodges, so if you’ve tagged them in your posts they should show up in their respective albums and hopefully help you gain a few more loyal fans!

We’ll swap out the photo at the top of this post on a regular basis and link it to a different guest, photographer, photo leader, guide or staffer. Have to spread the “Loves” and “Likes” around! Of course, we’re also hoping you’ll follow @churchillwildsafaris on Instagram too. 🙂

A huge thanks to all of our guests, professional photographers, photo leaders and staff for sharing your incredible photos with us! Enjoy!

These magnificent beings have help me appreciate how connected our natural systems really are and how every element has a roll to play in its balance.  They have led me to new places, and introduced me to new friends. Besides they remain one the most charismatic subjects to watch and photograph.  Polar bears deserve there own day maybe everyday!

FACING THE STORM TOGETHER :: photo and story by @t FACING THE STORM TOGETHER :: photo and story by @takkiwrites
.
"It was a cold and stormy November afternoon at Seal River Heritage Lodge. Some of my fellow guests decided to stay indoors but not me. I love challenging weather, so I bundled up and headed outside with our guides Terry and Andy. There was a polar bear hanging around near the lodge, though he seemed quite restless, moving around a lot, perhaps in search of shelter from the storm. Suddenly, a fox appeared and started following the polar bear. I was lucky to capture the moment when the polar bear and the fox stood next to each other in harmony as though they were best friends, facing the freezing wind of the Arctic together."

A Hudson Bay wolf pauses to watch as we hike past. A Hudson Bay wolf pauses to watch as we hike past. The Kaska Coast has the largest wolf species (C. Lupus) on the planet, with some individuals topping 200 lbs, twice the size of the Yellowstone wolves and—for you Game of Thrones fans—even larger than the extinct dire wolf (C. Dire) of the Pleistocene and Holocene. These are the only non-human animals that hunt polar bears—the largest land carnivores walking Earth today. It’s always a magical and thrilling sight to encounter wolves so close when I’m on foot. 📷🇨🇦

The cheekiest Arctic fox that I ever did meet. 🥰⁣
⁣
These last few weeks in sub-Arctic Canada photo-guiding with churchillwildsafaris have been incredible. Polar bears, Arctic fox, red fox, wolverines, wolves, moose, gyrfalcons, and so much more. Despite the harsh climate (-40c is pretty cold, trust me), wildlife continues to thrive in this special corner of the world.⁣
⁣
All that said, this is an extremely fragile environment; each element in a delicate balance with the next. If one falters, the system collapses. With climate patterns becoming increasingly unpredictable, the challenges that face wildlife here are now unprecedented.

Our incredibly hardworking team at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge have found a mom and cubs and yesterday guests had this encounter. @jaddavenport captured an amazing video and describes the scene: “Mom is resting while her two cubs climb all over her. We’re headed back out again way before dawn tomorrow to keep tracking  as she tries to reach the safety of the sea ice. We’re hoping to witness the magic when these 12-week-old cubs first touch the frozen ocean.” 💕

Time for more bears. Different colour this time as Time for more bears. Different colour this time as I head off to Alaska to hang out with Grizzlies. Being there with my good friends davesandford and drewhh guarantees a great and I’m sure it will go all too quickly. Long days, hard work and many laughs along the way. Alaska is such an iconic destination for any lover of nature and wildlife and for me a bucket list place to visit. Capturing grizzly images that have impact will be difficult as so many great photographers have brought us a plethora of great images over the years. So I’ll be using my experiences to try and get up close with the bears and attempting something different. I’m not sure if my excitement outweighs my nerves. Let the adventure begin. -

I almost missed International Polar Bear Day, a da I almost missed International Polar Bear Day, a day to celebrate the wonder of Polar bears, like this handsome male bear I saw a couple of years ago as he was snoozing on the tundra on the shores of Hudson Bay. It was late afternoon in the late summer and he was extremely sleepy, doing his best to conserve his energy while waiting for the big freeze to start. .
International Polar Bear Day is also a day to take action to preserve their sea ice home. Polar bears rely on Arctic sea ice to hunt their seal prey. As the global climate continues to warm, Arctic sea ice forms later and melts sooner, threatening the future of polar bears and the entire arctic ecosystem. Check polarbearsinternational for ideas on small but effective changes we can all make to reverse these changes and preserve the Polar Bears Arctic home.

We have never experienced anything quite like this We have never experienced anything quite like this. We were on the same ground as Polar Bears as they walked on by. Our churchillwildsafaris guides have been developing a fascinating program to ensure the safety of the guests and the bears. It was a very humbling experience. Interested in coming on this trip next year in October 2020? Message us for details 🙏🏼 #canoncanada #churchillwild #arcticwildlife #arctic #cangeo #sharecangeo #polarbears #polarbear

Our Den Emergence trip at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge s Our Den Emergence trip at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge starts in just a few days. Scouts have found tracks from two sets of moms and cubs...a good sign for incoming guests. It's also the best time of year for northern lights viewing, evidenced by this photo taken by @bellacoola2014 on our Den trip two years ago. 😍

Even though wolves have a massive range across Nor Even though wolves have a massive range across North America, Europe and Asia, they’re very hard to photograph in the wild (they’re accustomed to getting shot at). Most photographers go to Yellowstone or drive the Dalton in Alaska or Dempster in Yukon, or head up to Ellesmere Island. We’ve been very lucky at churchillwildsafaris Nanuk Lodge during the Den Emergence Quest—the search for mother polar bears and newborn cubs. Several wolf packs roam this uninhabited coast, a wilderness ten times the size of Yellowstone. In the heart of winter they pack up and their coats are full and gorgeous. natgeo is featuring one of my shots on Instagram this Friday. Almost every time I saw this crew here, I’d start howling and they’d join right in. Here they look like I just asked ‘who wants to go for a walk?’ 📷🇨🇦 .
