Guests will join Dr. Stephen D. Petersen, Head of Conservation and Research at Assiniboine Park Zoo on a one-day excursion to Churchill, Manitoba, Polar Bear Capital of the World. For each guest on the tour, Frontiers North Adventures will donate $150 to Assiniboine Park Conservancy.
“It’s always exciting when I get to see bears in the wild and I welcome the opportunity to share that with people who may be experiencing it for the first time,” said Dr. Stephen Petersen. “We are grateful to Frontiers North Adventure for their support of Assiniboine Park Conservancy, and are excited to have a part in introducing guests to the inspiration for our Journey to Churchill exhibit.”
The October 31st adventure includes round-trip airfare to Churchill from Winnipeg, a full-day Tundra Buggy® Adventure, meals and transfers. The cost is $1,649 CDN per person, which includes the $150 donation to the Assiniboine Park Conservancy.
“We partner with the Assiniboine Park Conservancy on this adventure, strengthening the relationship between Churchill and the ‘Journey to Churchill’,” said John Gunter, CEO of Frontiers North Adventures. “Guests enjoy a visit to the truly unique town of Churchill, Manitoba and travel on a Tundra Buggy® to see polar bears in the wild. Plus, their participation is resulting in a donation to Assiniboine Park Conservancy which help more people learn about the beauty of the North through the Journey to Churchill exhibit.”
The Assiniboine Park Conservancy is the not-for-profit entity that manages, promotes and acquires charitable support for Assiniboine Park and Assiniboine Park Zoo. Fundraising efforts through its Imagine a Place Campaign have now raised over $130 million to date towards the overall $200 million redevelopment goal.
