Celebrate Mama Too!

Today, Mother Ilka’s twins turn one-year-old. They are siblings to our superstar cub, Siku.

Ilka is 22-years-old and loves floating in her lake. While polar bears in the wild typically live to 15-18, polar bears in zoos live up to 42-years! So Ilka’s in the prime of her life and successfully raising two healthy cubs. You can see Ilka and the twins on the live cam here.

You can also visit Ilka’s other baby Siku and his friend Smilla¬†on their live cam, and travel to Canada to see the wild polar bears¬†migrating to seal hunting grounds now!
