Choose a Winner for the Polar Bear Naming Contest

We asked you to Name the Polar Bear and with all the great entries, we have five awesome finalists and are asking you to choose the winner!

Explore.org teamed up with Polar Bears International to track a mother polar bear currently named X35591. We asked you the viewers to make a catchier, more memorable name for her and we have some fantastic options to choose from. Now it’s up to you again, to choose the name you like best and finally, Name that Polar Bear!
