WATCH: a livecam of the world's largest migration of polar bears
These wonderful creatures migrate annually, and a tiny Canadian town is one of the few settlements where their journey can be observed. Thanks to explore.org, Polar Bears International and Frontiers North Adventures, this live feed saves you a trip to the Hudson Bay.
Welcome to the annual polar bear migration in Churchill, Manitoba. Explore.org set up 8 cameras, and rotates to the most active view for the livestream above, which we're delighted to present here at Boing Boing. Next week is Polar Bear Week, during which you will return to this page often in order to get more relaxing, enlightening polar bear action.
"The entire endeavor isn't to raise money or help brands sell things," writes Explore.org's Zach Serveido. "It's literally to help people reconnect with the world around them, and maybe inspire some folks along the way."
Explore.org maintains a homepage for the feeds, including archives of particularly awesome moments (fights, nuzzles, tumbles, etc) at explore.org/polarbears.
