Do you remember Buffalo Zoo’s adorable polar bear cub? Here she’s exploring an outdoor exhibit for the first time to see some snow. While she is still a little small to be out full time, this was a chance for her to play in the snow.
This snow-white polar bear cub was born on November 27 at the Buffalo Zoo, where she’s been hand-raised by the facility’s staff. Last Friday the cub, who has yet to be named, made her public debut when when she was brought into a makeshift enclosure, where she purred audibly after being bottlefed by veterinary technician Alice Rohauer.
Today, February 27, is International Polar Bear Day. You can make this day extra special by taking part in the Thermostat Challenge. Just put your thermostat up or down a few degrees (depending on where in the world you live) to lower carbon emissions and help save polar bears.
San Diego Zoo‘s panda cub Xiao Liwu is growing up fast and gets stronger every day — it took three sets of hands to measure and examine him. Animal care staff report that the 6-month-old cub continues to be playful and isn’t very interested in sitting still.
