After our wonderful session with the Polar Bears, Jeanette told us that she had arranged a very special event. We were going to be split into two groups and taken behind the scenes to have a keeper talk and meet the Orangs: Djimat and his daughter, Cinta.

The very experienced keepers at Aalborg ensure that even seasoned Polar Bear fans like us are reminded of the safety precautions necessary when going in to the rear areas. We were under close supervision at all times.

I was very relieved to arrive in Aalborg on Wednesday morning. The arrangements had worked better than I could have hoped. Danish State Railways had been efficient and comfortable.

In the afternoon I returned to the Arctic Ring as the small enclosure was now empty. I soon found Imaq and Lynn at the back of the terrain in the Arctic Ring.

After seeing Noel in the large Arctic Ring, I went over to the small enclosure to see if anyone was there. At first all was quiet.

I had decided during the hot days at the end of July and August to make a final trip this year to Denmark. With Imaq in Copenhagen and Nuka and Quillak in Aalborg, there were some lovely bears to see while they were still young.

After the wonderful time we had spent with the Polar Bears, Jeanette told us that we were going to have an additional treat as “friends” of the Zoo. She had arranged for us to go inside the Elephant House.

Being able to feed Nuka and Quillak was only the first stage of the visit to the Polar Bear house. We were also going to be able to meet Malik and Nord.

Thursday in Aalborg was a special day thanks to Jeanette Johnsen and Susanne Hansen, who had organised with the Zoo as “Friends of the Zoo” for us to meet and feed the Polar Bears, with one of the keepers.

As the day got into its swing, I had been joined by Molly Merrow. Molly took a shot of me chatting to “Muddy Paws”. Malik was very relaxed about Nord and allowed him to follow her around.
