Yorkshire Wildlife Park in England will soon be welcoming their first polar bear.
Victor, a 15-year-old male polar bear at Rhenen Zoo in Holland will be the first to arrive at the park’s brand new polar bear reserve. The polar bear reserve joins some of the biggest in the world, with four different sections spanning 10 acres and will feature waterfalls, pools, landscaped hills, rocky areas and up to 8m deep lakes among many other natural features. Victor has been selected to join the park’s collection as he is no longer required for the breeding programme at Rhenen Zoo. He is due to arrive at the Park next month in a specialist climate controlled transporter and will be given time to settle in and will spend time getting to know his keepers. Once staff are confidient he has settled in, the polar bear centre, called Project Polar, will be opened to the public. Read more
