Canada's polar bears can be viewed in Wapusk National Park outside Churchill in northern Manitoba. Tundra Buggy Tours by Frontiers North Adventures assists travelers to see the bears. The local bear population has dropped from 1200 to about 900 as the sea ice declines, seal hunting is less successful, and body fat buildup in the bears decreases. Body fat in a female determines how many bear cubs will be born, and the trend is down from two births to one birth.
The Canadian Rockies, west of Calgary, offer many things to do and see, such as the Banff Springs Hotel, Chateau Lake Louise, and National Parks named Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, and Yolo.
