In Manitoba’s Churchill region, global warming is taking its toll on the Polar Bear population. Winter is coming late and ending early, and so the season for hunting ring seals on the ice is dramatically shortened. A year ago at this time the tundra would have been white with ice and snow; but in 2007 the landscape was brown instead of snow white. These images can be useful as editorial shots for global warming articles.
