Wilbär’s 10th birthday was celebrated today with a magnificent cake and lots of gifts in Orsa. The cake was made of ‘knäckebröd’, fish, yoghurt with a water melon/coconut topping.



Happy Birthday, Dear Wilbärle!

When we visited Orsa in June we met only one lynx but later we found out that a lynx baby was born in May. It was, of course, too small at the time so the visitors couldn’t see it ….



Wilbär had mercy with us!

On Wednesday morning (1st of June) we could only notice that it was going to be another very hot day. Of course, it didn’t prevent us from being very excited about a new day with bears!

This time we made sure we didn’t forget the water bottles. They were stuffed in my new ‘zoo bag’ I bought yesterday in the shop. We arrived in the park in good time so we had to wait a little before it was opened.



Wilbär knows how to stay cool in the heat!

After our visit in Rostock we started planning visiting even Orsa. We thought the end of May/the beginning of June would be a perfect time because it wouldn’t be too warm. Oh bear, were we wrong!!! When we got out of the car in front of our hotel it was like stepping into a Finnish sauna.

The hot weather lasted during the couple of days we spent in Orsa/Mora. Well, we just had to accept that the weather gods were teasing us ….

Eight years ago we received happy news from Wilhelma in Stuttgart. Corinna and Anton had became proud parents of a sweet polar bear cubbie who was later named Wilbär.



Happy hibernating, brown bears in Orsa!

10.10.2015 Soon the snow will fall to stay in Orsa and the clever brown bears know it’s time for them to retire and start hibernating. Many of them are already sleeping but this one enjoys the last sun rays before moving into the world of sweet dreams. We are ready! So am I – oh […]

Good morning, Wilbär!

21.8.2015 – Photos by Anders Björklund, Orsa Predator Center The evenings in an animal park are always something special and so are the early mornings before the visitors start coming. Wilbär is still in the Dreamland but soon it’s time to wake up to a new exciting day. A very good morning to you all! […]
