I’ve had the great pleasure and privilege to meet both Sisu (in Ranua) and Nobby (in Munich) when they were still small cubs. It’s wonderful to see these lovely polar bears together in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park now that they have reached an adult age.

Today it was time for Hope to take her sweet cubbies out for the first time. The mother and the babies are first staying in an inner enclosure near the den. This means that the visitors can only seen them from the distance – if they’re lucky.

I guess you all know by now that the fantastic Orsa Predator Center is threatened by the Grönklitt’s decision to close down it.
