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.
