26.1.2021 – Photos by Arkadi Laptenko

My Russian friends have told me that Shauna and Nordi are now separated from their mother Gerda. As far as I know the twins are still in Novosibirsk but most probably they will move to another zoo.

Thanks to our friends in Novosibirsk we’ve been able to follow Shauna and Norde ever since Gerda brought them out of the den for the first time. I’m sure we will all miss them! Let’s hope they will come to a zoo where we can follow them even in the future! I hope I will soon have more information.

Arkadi and Anna have taken lots of photos of this lovely family and here are some of Arkadi’s photos for you.

Something in the air?

What is this?

It looks like a wood log ….

Whatever it is the bears seem to be very interested.

We can share everything – at least for a moment …. 🙂

Just look and admire the smiles on our faces!

Nordi or Shauna is posing in a very polar bearish manner. 🙂

Many visitors are using their cell phones all the time and it seems to me Nordi has been watching them! 🙂

Maybe Mama Gerda knows it’s soon time to let the kids go …..

Kai has waited a long time and soon it’s time for him to join Gerda again.

I think this is one of the best photos ever taken of Kai!

  1. Wenns auch der Lauf der Welt ist,tut es mir trotzdem leid,es war so ein schönes Zusammensein,aber für Kai ist das Alleinsein vorbei. Ja,hoffentlich kommen die Kinder in einen feinen Zoo und wo wir weiterhin von ihnen hören und sehen können!Es wäre auch schön,wenn sie zusammenbleiben könnten.

    Liebe Grüße von Brigitte.

  2. Dear Anna, Arkadij and Mervi
    The moment when a Mother Polar Bear decides to drive her cubs away from her to fend for themselves in the wild is a harsh one. In a Zoo it is even harder for the little ones as they know she is still near them.
    Thank you all for the beauriful journey with Gerda, Shauna and Nordi. But Kai is perhaps happier now to have his Gerda back.

  3. Dear Mervi!
    Dear Anna, Nina and Arkadij!
    What a pity that the wonderful time Shauna and Nordi spent with their mother is already over. I hope that life has many more wonderful things in store for them and that the best possible new home will be found for them. I´m keeping my fingers crossed for them and wish them all the best!

    These are two beautiful photos of Kai and at least I am happy for him that he will soon be reunited with Gerda.

    Thank you for the lovely reports and the great photos of this adorable and cuddly polar bear family in Novosibirsk! They were a pure pleasure!

    Hugs
    Anke
