Ewa’s and Wilbär’s baby in the snow for the first time

On Wednesday (3rd of March) our polar bear cub had it’s third month birthday and celebrated it in the snow with mama Ewa.


The baby bear has now started to take short excursions outside the den. Ewa and the baby are not yet in the bigger enclosures but spend their time in a small enclosure near the den. Every now and then they take walks outdoors. That means it’s not sure the visitors can see them but there’s a chance they can see at least a glimpse of them from a distance.


It’s important the baby gets acclimatized for the cold climate but even short walks take a lot of energy so the walks mustn’t be too long.

Of course, the door to the den is open all the time so the mother and the baby can go in and out as they choose. After the months in the den Ewa loves to stay in the sun and enjoy the day light.


The cubbie has started to take small bites of Ewa’s food but, naturally, mama’s milk bar is the best source of nourishment.

  1. Dear Mervi
    Sadly Wilbaer’s parents Anton and Corinna are no longer with us and his fomer concrete home in Stuttgart will now be a home to
    Cheetahs. Fortunately, Wilbaer now has his own cub to remind us of those days when Wilbaer joined Flocke and Knut.
    Ewa is able to produce her cub in the wonderful snowy world of Orsa.. The pictures remind me of Hamish’s first photos in 2018.
    These little ones grow up all too fast. These mother and cub photos are so special.

  2. Dear Mervi

    The pictures are to melt away!!!
    I wish Ewa and her little one much more joy in the snow!

    Enchanted greetings,

  3. Dear Mervi!
    Great news from Orsa! A baby is very cute.

  4. Absolutely adorable. Thanks for sharing photos of this cutie.


  5. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to Ewa, Wilbär and their baby.

  6. Dear Mervi!
    What a sweetie!
    I am glad that the little one is doing so well and can enjoy some more snow before it is spring in Orsa too.
    Ewa seems to be a good and caring mother.
    Thank you for sharing these lovely pics with us.


  7. Liebe Mervi,

    ich freue mich mit dir über den süßen Kleinen in Orsa und hoffe, dass du ihn noch als Babybärchen in diesem Jahr besuchen kannst. Wie SISU in Ranua hat er eine schneereiche Kinderstube und bis zu dem ersten grünen Grashalm in seinem Gehege hat er noch lange Zeit, um im Schnee herum zu tollen.

    Traurig und schade, dass Teddybärenmutti das nicht mehr miterleben konnte…..

  8. That seems to be a right especially cute polar bear cub.

    Thanks for the information and happy pics of the ORSA PREDATOR CENTER of EWA’s and WILBÄR’s lovely cub.

  9. Das kleine Bärchen hat sich wirklich ein wunderschönes Eisbaerenzuhause ausgesucht?
    Alles Gute nach Orsa!

    Liebe Grüße, Erika
