Established primarily to protect polar bear breeding grounds (wapusk is Cree for 'white bear'), this remote park extends along Hudson Bay's shores 45km southeast of Churchill. Its location between boreal forests and arctic tundra gives it importance for monitoring the effects of climate change. Visits center on polar bears and are only possible through licensed operators.
