Watching polar bears spar is one of the highlights of observing bears in fall in northern Manitoba. 

Nestled on the shore of the Hudson Bay, Churchill, sits on the annual migration path of the polar bears, when they transition from land to sea.

It’s the largest known concentration of polar bears in the world. Young sub-adults and adults often spend their time sparring or play-fighting.
Scientists have various explanations for this behaviour. It reinforces relationships and helps establish a hierarchy, provides practice for real future fights over potential mates, and helps them get into shape for the coming seal hunting season.
