30.11.2021 – Photos by Sheila and Philip Baker

Today happens to be a very special day. Luka was born on the 30th of November in Rhenen, Netherlands but since December 2020 he lives in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in England.

Happy birthday to you, sweet Luka! I made a card for you with lots of snow. I know it’s been snowing in England so maybe you’ve already seen some real snow flakes, too.

He’s a jolly good fellow – so say all of us!

Suddenly they were four! How wonderful to see the whole family together.

  1. What a lovely collection of photos of “our” Bears. This has made my day. I hope to see them tomorrow.

  2. Dear Sheila, Philip and Mervi
    Luka looks so good after moving to YWP.
    Thank you for this beautiful Advent card.

  3. Dear, Sheila,
    dearPhilip,

    this is a beautiful Advent greeting from Yorkshere and the bears
    can look forward to delicious surprises, because what is transported with a big truck? Lots of good food for ever-hungry bears, of course.

    Sheila, Philip, your beautiful photos always bring great joy and you can see that everyone there is doing very well. I wish them lots of snow, although unfortunately it is becoming more and more a rarity.

    Thank you and best regards
    Britta-Gudrun
