Auf Facebook ist der Zoo Warschau sehr aktiv und informiert ausführlich über alles was im Zoo passiert.

So erschien am 8.Sept. ein Beitrag mit Bild von Ali und der Text war: Was träumt der Bär – wie wäre es mit neuem Spielzeug und einem Fass voll Mayonaise!

Dieses Jahr konnten wir das erste Mal direkt von Nürnberg nach Warschau fliegen, was schon eine enorme Zeitersparnis ist. Nur 1 Stunde und 40 Minuten und dann so schnell wie möglich in den Zoo Warschau.

Kurz nach 14Uhr sahen wir dann Gregor und Aleut und der Anblick der nun erwachsenen Bären ist einfach nur schön.

Terve! Hello! Dear friends, it’s been a while since I wrote to you but now it’s time again!

The Autumn is a lovely season here in northern Finland. The leaves of the trees and the bushes are flaming in all possible colours. It’s called ‘ruska’ in Finnish.

Like all Polar Bears, Nuka and Qilaq are always interested in what is going on in their neighbourhood. Aalborg Zoo is fortunate to have large numbers of plate glass windows where the bears can meet you, both in the water, underwater and on land.

Terve! Hello! Dear friends, this time I want to present two new sporting disciplines for you. But before I do that I have some information about my future. The Finnish speakers will find the same information in the Ranua Zoo’s latest newsletter.

Terve! Hello! Dear friends, here I come again! It’s been awfully hot again and I’m really worried about all my friends in the wild. There are forest fires threatening both the humans’ and the animals’ homes in Sweden so I’m thinking of Wilbär, Ewa and Hope in Orsa.

Unbelievable but true! Today Knutitours celebrates it’s 10th anniversary! When I started this tour I never thought I would be writing this. I never believed Knutitours would still be going strong after all these years.

There have been ups and downs during the long journey – from small mishaps to a total crash but like the bird Fenix Knutitours has always arised from the ashes.

Some news about Vienna

Vienna is fine. She still spends lots of time in her water moat, enjoying swimming and colder temperatures.

Our male Moni has just turned 31 and because of health issues due to his respectable age, our vet decided not to move him to the enclosure currently occupied by Vienna as it is usually the case at this time of the year.

This Easter should have been a joyful Easter in Hellabrunn with many visitors who wanted to meet Giovanna’s and Yoghi’s lovely daughter Quintana. The happy expectations turned into deepest mourning when our dear Yoghi had to cross the Rainbow Bridge.

The sad news chocked us all. It all happened so suddenly ….. it’s still hard to believe our dear bear is gone.
