Before the year 2020 came to an end the keepers in the Novosibirsk Zoo assisted Father Frost when he came to visit Gerda, Kai, Shauna and Nordi. What great surprises there were for the polar bears!



Happy new polar bear year!

Brrrr! It’s been really cold in Novosibirsk. The lowest temperature has been -40 Celsius! I’m sure the polar bears don’t mind but it must be challenging for all the zoo visitors.



White Christmas quaranteed!

Even people who don’t like Winter so much are always hoping for a white Christmas. We can’t always get what we want but Gerda, Kai, Nordi and Shauna will make your Christmas as white as they can!

After the morning rolling in the snow Gerda is making sure the kids are presentable for the visitors. Now it’s time to make plans for the day’s activities.

The 11th of December 2018 was a very happy day in the Novosibirsk Zoo. Gerda and Kai became parents to two sweet cubs. They were given names Nordi (boy) and Shauna (girl).

Gerda celebrated her 13th birthday on the 20th of November and, of course, the keepers had arranged a nice family party for the birthday bear and her kids Shauna and Nordi.

The Summer in Novosibirsk was extremely hot so it’s no wonder the polar bear family in the zoo has been looking forward to the visit of the Old Man Winter.

The weather forecast has predicted snow in Novosibirsk so Gerda, Kai, Shauna and Nordi are hopefully looking forward to the falling snow flakes. Ice would be nice, too!
