A Couple of Days

Late one afternoon a couple of days ago, some of the Whitetail Deer that are around my apartment building came and spent some time in the field outside my window.  The young ones are hard to tell from the adults now, but it looks like the Moms are still a bit taller – although not… Continue reading A Couple of Days

A Different View of the Zoo

Today I decided to concentrate more on the buildings and the spaces at the Assiniboine Park Zoo instead of the critters.  Of course, some critters still managed to get into a few photos, but I got many photos without critters too.  🙂 We will start with the entrance.  If you click on the pictures, you… Continue reading A Different View of the Zoo

Polar Bears – Assiniboine Park Zoo

The Polar Bears were having so much fun in the fresh snow we had overnight.  I took lots of pictures and a short video while watching them. The Journey to  Churchill exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo is such a natural place for these big guys.  There is no pacing as is often seen in zoo… Continue reading Polar Bears – Assiniboine Park Zoo

My Own Journey to Churchill

I’m not talking about another trip to the Journey to Churchill exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo this time.  I have now scheduled a trip to Churchill to see the Polar Bears in the wild. I was minding my own business and reading emails when I saw a one day trip to Churchill from CAA –… Continue reading My Own Journey to Churchill

Polar Bears and Seals

As mentioned in other posts, the Polar Bears are a big part of the Journey to Churchill exhibit at the Assiniboine Park Zoo.  Right beside the Polar Bears live one of their favourite foods – Seals – specifically Harbour Seals. While I was at the zoo on Friday, one of the Polar Bears was at… Continue reading Polar Bears and Seals

Polar Bears – Assiniboine Park Zoo

The main emphasize behind the Journey to Churchill exhibit at the Assiniboine Park Zoo is the Polar Bears, with other northern animals also included in surrounding exhibits.   I was under the impression when the work first began that Polar Bears would be brought here for with the intent of returning them to the wild once… Continue reading Polar Bears – Assiniboine Park Zoo

Journey to Churchill

Journey to Churchill is a new exhibit at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg.  This was in planning for a long time (no idea exactly how long) and under construction for around 2 years. The main focus of this exhibit is the Polar Bears – but other Northern animals have also been benefited by new… Continue reading Journey to Churchill

Hudson the Polar Bear – Assiniboine Park Zoo

A new arrival at the Assiniboine Park Zoo is Hudson the Polar Bear.  He is a young bear who will make his home here among the rescue Polar Bears that will be coming for rehabilitation and release once the Journey to Churchill is complete.  I assume he will be kept separate, but will maybe be… Continue reading Hudson the Polar Bear – Assiniboine Park Zoo

Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winter

I haven’t been to the Assiniboine Park Zoo for awhile and I’ve hardly ever been there in the winter.  I know it is officially spring, but with 3 feet of snow still on the ground, its still winter as far as I am concerned. I’m not sure if I have even been there since my… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winter

Arctic Fox – Assiniboine Park Zoo

I love the little Arctic Foxes.  Well – yes, I love all the critters and they are all special, but these little guys are  – well, special.  🙂 They are very difficult to get a picture of because the chain link fence surrounding their enclosure is hard to shoot through and they seldom stop moving… Continue reading Arctic Fox – Assiniboine Park Zoo
