Terve! Hello! Dear friends! The Summer has arrived in Ranua and we’ve already had a real heat wave. I miss the snow but on the other hand the grass feels quite nice under my paws, too. I can also admire the green trees and bushes in our enclosure.

First Ewa and Wilbär didn’t even notice Hope because now they had access to both big enclosures and they wanted to explore the area again. This went on quite a while until Wilbär got very interested in the young lady.

Terve! Hello! I’ve seen photos of a beautiful polar bear girl (whose name begins with the letter ‘Q’) playing on the green grass but here in Ranua we have to wait for a while until we can see the green stuff.



The lions found us very boring

1.5.2018 by Mervi & Vesa Although we spent most of our time in the Copenhagen Zoo with the polar bears we managed to see many other animals, too.
