Adaptation…

The climate around Churchill is so harsh that it’s amazing that human beings can exist here. After all, we are at 58 degrees North latitude in an area that is sub-arctic. The Inuit have lived here for many many generations and are masters of adaptation. If it weren’t for our artificial habitat (clothing and housing) it would certainly be impossible for us to visit.

The natural inhabitants are experts at adaptation and utilization of their surroundings. The red fox kit (pup) blends in with its surroundings when it lies down and the polar bear is a master of disguise for most of the year. Caribou blend in to the tundra so well they are hard to see at a distance.

We’ll continue to look for wildlife for the next four weeks and update our photo file (http://www.catonphoto.zenfolio.com/ – Portfolio/Churchill MB) on a regular basis. Please let us know what you think.
