How to Get Really Close to a Polar Bear

Sparring is a form of play-fighting for male polar bears.
Read my story "How to Get Really Close to a Polar Bear" in NowU, USA Today publication, about traveling to Churchill, Manitoba, Canada to see polar bears in their natural habitat.

In addition to observing polar bear activities, we observed beautiful sunsets and sunrises in the frigid tundra climate.

Another bonus--we also saw the Northern Lights!
