Great week of celebrating geography, thanks MWW! I just returned from a trip to see polar bears along the Hudson Bay in Manitoba. They are waiting for the Bay to ice-over so that they can walk out on the Bay and hunt their favorite food--seals--through holes in the ice. I learned on my visit that the Bay takes an estimated one week longer to freeze every year, and thaws approximately one week earlier in the spring. The bears are losing roughly two weeks of hunting/eating time. I guess that area is what you would call a Hotspot!

Have you seen the adventure learning web site for Go North! ? www.polarhusky.com. The Go North! Team travels by dogsled to a different part of the Arctic every year. Cool way to learn!

Thanks again for a great web site for geography!
