Churchill

Canada's only main port on the Arctic Ocean, Churchill is linked to the rest of the country only by the Hudson Bay Railway and by airplane. The small town is on the shore of Hudson Bay in Manitoba, Canada, situated at the estuary of the Churchill River at Hudson Bay.

The small community stands at an ecotone, the juncture of three ecoregions: the boreal forest to the south, the Arctic tundra to the northwest, and the Hudson Bay to the north.

It is most famous for the many polar bears that move toward the shore from inland in the autumn, leading to the nickname "Polar Bear Capital of the World" that has helped its growing tourism industry.
