It’s All About Choices
Exhibit: Polar Bear Passage was created to specifically meet polar bear’s needs.
A 140,000 gallon pool chilled to 65 degrees for swimming and diving. A giant sand pit for digging and a grassy yard for rolling and napping. Behind the scenes there are air-conditioned bedrooms and den complete with private swimming pool!
Enrichment: Daily, Zookeepers use varied foods, smells, toys and sounds to stimulate our polar bears mind.

( Balls? Barrels? Logs? Straw? )
Diet: Our polar bear has a wide choice of food items daily. Herring, capelin, trout, polar bear kibble, lard and a wide selection of fruits and vegetables are all on the menu. Seasonally, polar bear weights fluctuate widely just as they would in the Arctic. In summer months, polar bears weigh much less because they are unable to hunt seals on the ice. In the winter, when hunting is possible, polar bears pack on the pounds.
