A River Runs Through It

Spring has sprung and that means all the progress made on Polar Bear Odyssey over the winter is now starting to show! Recently, construction workers removed the protective plastic covering on the new rock work in the exhibit and it looks great! Our new exhibit will feature several areas where we can train the bears right on exhibit so visitors can see all the training we do with Buzz and Neil.

The keepers were invited into the exhibit to look at the progress being made. We all put on hard hats and went in to assess the location of a stream that runs from once side of the exhibit into a large diving pool. The stream runs right behind one of the training demonstration areas, so we wanted to make sure there was enough room for the bears to train near it. Afterwards, we took tour to see the progress of the exhibit and we're very excited for Buzz and Neil to come home and see their new habitat!
