(Newser) – Every year, hundreds of Canadian polar bears journey to the Hudson Bay to hunt seals—and this year, you can watch it happen. The bears travel through the small Manitoba town of Churchill, where cameras have been set up to allow people all over the world to view the trek, the AP reports. The program, funded by the Annenberg Foundation, should increase awareness of the perils the bears face thanks to climate change, an activist says. Watch the bears at www.explore.org.
