Wildlife of Manitoba
It is Churchill on the shores of Hudson Bay that, during the summer months, attracts birds and up to 57,000 beluga whales. Polar bears take up residence here in the autumn waiting for the winter sea ice to form so they can hunt for seals.
Other places of interest include Riding Mountain National Park, well-known as a black bear hotspot and the beaches of Lake Winnipeg. The provincial capital, Winnipeg, is also home to many cultural attractions and is known for its ethnic diversity.
