It’s summer in Polar Bear Town! Thousands of beluga whales are in the bay and tourists are flocking to see them. Every fall, approximately 10,000 tourists from around the world descend on the tiny, isolated town of Churchill, Manitoba in Canada to see these animals, but this year is different – belugas aren’t the only show in town. Polar bears are arriving earlier than usual. Guides have their hands full, with bears coming right into town, looking for food. If the bears reach their destination, it could be disastrous for tourists and locals alike.
“Unlike a typical reality series or straight documentary, Polar Bear Town brings the best of both worlds…filled with the tension that can only result from humans being so close to such a dangerous and beautiful creature.” – Chase McPeak, The Manual
