Diergaarde Blijdorp – Wolodja found a new toy

3.5.2021 – Photos by Nel Hoekstra

Diergaarde Blijdorp in Rotterdam had test opening for one day on the 30th of April. Here’s more information from the zoo. I publish the info in Dutch for a change. I could understand it (at least I think so 🙂 ) so I’m sure that you will, too. Otherwise, please, use a translator. 🙂

‘Blijdorp heeft besloten om alleen op vrijdag 30 april mee te doen aan de testdag. De testen van zaterdag 1 en zondag 2 mei komen dus te vervallen. Volgens de routekaart van de overheid is het vooruitzicht nu dat dierentuinen op 11 mei zonder testen maar met coronamaatregelen weer open kunnen. De tijdsloten & tickets voor de testdag kunnen vanaf woensdag 21 april 10:00 uur geboekt worden. Wij menen dat wij onze bezoekers een veilige dag uit kunnen bieden zonder coronatests. Blijdorp heeft bijna 28 hectare groen vooral in de buitenlucht.’

Our friend Nel was one of the lucky ones to get a ticket and, of course, she hurried to meet Wolodja first!

Wolodja found an interesting ‘thing’.

Is this breakable?

Hmm, looks like this is going to be a real challenge!!

I must figure out what strategy would be the most demolishing ….

Anybody home?

Time for a little green snack

After a snack a little rest is needed. The thingie seems to be perfect for scratching my back! 🙂

Let’s see what more I can do today.

Wolli has smelled something ….. or maybe he was just in a digging mood. 🙂

Now I’m tired so, please, may I have some privacy? OK, birdie – you can stay.

  1. Dear Nel and Mervi
    Thank you for giving us the chance to see Wolodja
    again.
    He certainly looks in good shape, and his fur has taken on the colours of the enclosure.
    Wolli enjoys doing this with his toys. He is very determined.

  2. Liebe Mervi,

    feine Fotos sind das von Wolodja, der sich offenbar sehr wohl fühlt
    und wieder jede Menge in seinem Gehege zu tun hat.

    Das Foto mit anybody home? gefällt mir ganz besonders gut!

    Danke Nel für die tollen Fotos und liebe Grüße
    Britta-Gudrun

  4. Dear Nel and Mervi!
    Thank you for the pictures of Wolodja. He is busy 🙂 and he is doing well.
    Hugs

  5. Wolodja sieht gut aus
    und hat etwas Tarnfarbe
    aufgelegt. Beschäftigungs-
    material ist eine wichtige
    Maßnahme in den Zoos. 🙂
    Wolodja nimmt es gerne an.

  6. Dear Nel and Mervi!
    Wolodja looks great and still seems to be the lovable bear we knew him to be. “Anybody home? ” is also a favourite photo of mine. And by the way, it is proven here once again that a dirty bear is a happy bear.
    Thank you for these pleasing pictures of a contented polar bear.

    Hugs
