Sunday, April 22, 2012 is Earth Day, more than 175 countries around the World will be participating. The goal is to increase awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment.
For more than fifty years, BBC Earth has been capturing audiences with the natural world. With ground breaking series like Blue Planet and Planet Earth, they have brought the beauty and wonders of Earth right into our living rooms. In March 2012 BBC introduced Frozen Planet, which showed us the frozen wildernesses of the Arctic and Antarctic and gave us an up close look at fascinating polar animals like penguins and polar bears.
Ahead of the April 17 release of Frozen Planet, BBC launched the The Ultimate Polar Bear Adventure Sweepstakes where two pairs of winners (one in the US and one in Canada) will receive a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to observe these magnificent, endangered polar bears up close as well as discover the rich human and natural history of Manitoba, Canada.
This six-day adventure includes:
- Round trip airfare to Winnipeg, Manitoba
- Private charter flights between Manitoba and Churchill
- Local sightseeing and two full-day excursions deep into polar bear country
- A private cocktail party and dinner at the Manitoba Museum
- A storytelling session with a First Nation resident
- A dog sledding demonstration
Head on over to the The Ultimate Polar Bear Adventure Sweepstakes and enter.
The generous folks at the BBC have provided me with a giveaway prize for one of my lucky readers
