There’s still lots of snow in Ranua but some Spring signs can be seen, too. Malla and Jemma have been awake for some weeks now so they’ve been able to enjoy the snow before it melts away.



Even a snowy Spring is Spring!

Terve! Hello! This is the young bachelor Sisu in Ranua writing again. I’m trying to get used to live alone in the enclosure next to my mama’s enclosure. Of course, I miss her but I’m a big boy now and this is how life goes for a polar bear.

Terve! Hello! It’s me – your pal Sisu writing again. We still have a wonderful Winter here in Ranua with lots of snow and frost.

I have some news for you, too! Mama and I are now living in separate enclosures. She thought I’m big enough to have my own room.

Terve! Hello! Days are getting longer even in Ranua and the sun makes the snow shining white. It’s a good sign of the coming Spring. As you may already know the early Spring in northern Finland isn’t green but the snow and ice are slowly melting away. What you mean by ‘Spring’ comes here in late April or in May.



February is Sisuary now!

Terve! Hello! I’m sending frosty but warm greetings (can I write so?) to all the readers of this magazine. Although the weather is could and the roads icy many animal lovers come to visit mama and me which, of course, makes us very glad!



Sisu loves the wonderful whiteness

Terve! Hello! It’s me, your pal Sisu again! I hope you’ve all had a good start of this year just like my mama and I have. I’m glad to start the first newsletter of 2019 telling you that we’ve got more snow and everything is simply wonderful!
