It's summer in Churchill, Manitoba, a time when visitors flock to the area to see thousands of belugas crowding the Hudson Bay. But this year, there's an added attraction for tourists. With a decline of Arctic sea ice and longer summers, the polar bears have arrived early. For guides, it means more touring opportunities and more cash, but for locals, it means more danger. See how Churchill adapts to five extra weeks of bear season as predators and humans try to find a way to share one small town until the winter freeze-up.
