Polar Bear and Glaucous Gulls in the Canadian Arctic feeding on a dead Beluga Whale. Beluga Whales come into this shallow bay to rub off their outer skin, but some get stranded at low tide. This provides food for Polar Bears, gulls and other animals. We saw 17 Polar Bears at this location. Coningham Bay, Prince of Wales Island, Nunavut, on 26 August 2015, with Worldwide Quest.
