Happy Earth Day 2023!

Today is a day when people from all over the world come together to take action and preserve our beautiful planet. The Earth Day 2023 theme is focused on engaging people, governments, institutions, and businesses to recognize our collective responsibility and to help accelerate the transition to an equitable, prosperous green economy for all.

At Churchill Wild, we recognize the importance of preserving the habitats of our beloved polar bears, which is why our polar bear tours and safaris are primarily walking-based. The Arctic sea ice, the natural habitat of polar bears, is rapidly disappearing, and we have seen subtle changes in the behavior of polar bears at our ecolodges on the Hudson Bay coast.

The polar bears are adapting and evolving to face environmental challenges. Their survival depends on it. They have no choice. We, on the other hand, do have a choice, and if we can do our part to gradually slow climate change and give the polar bears more time to adapt, we will all share in the benefits of a cleaner, more sustainable planet.

To celebrate this Earth Day, we’ve compiled a list of 15 ways you can be kinder to the earth today. From reducing, reusing, and recycling to enjoying Earth Day activities with your family, there are many ways to contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable planet. You can also support an organization that is kind to the environment, volunteer for an environmentally friendly cause, and join a green space/river/lake/ocean cleanup group.

Regenerative agriculture has many benefits, including a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, increased yields, creation of drought-resistant soil, revitalization of local economies, enhanced biodiversity, and improved nutritional profiles of crops.

We’ve been incorporating green practices focused on sustainability in our operations for decades. Our founders, Mike and Jeanne Reimer, have instilled an earth-friendly mentality in our entire team, and we’re passionate about living greener lives.

Today and every day, let’s take action and protect our precious planet for generations to come!
