If a polar bear viewing trip to Churchill, Manitoba isn’t in the cards, you can still catch a glimpse of the beautiful species live from the comfort of your home or office.

Explore.org, Polar Bears International and Frontiers North have partnered to launch PolarBearCam.com, a live HD webcam streaming multiple views of the polar bears in the province’s north.

The bears are currently waiting for Hudson Bay to freeze over so they can cross, and now the public is being given a front row seat to the annual migration process.

The live streams are also meant to promote the preservation of the species.

“By providing a window into their worlds, we are giving people a chance to come together to cherish the bears and an opportunity to share their plight in a compelling way,” said Charles Annenberg Weingarten, filmmaker and founder of Explore.org.
