Mating the polar bears

By | May 2, 2014

Polar Bears at the Alaska Zoo.How do you get a pair of polar bears to mate? Very carefully. In fact, the polar bears at the Alaska Zoo were living relatively platonically until recently. Now its hoped that they’ll produce a cub that will help conserve the species. We’ll learn about our zoo, the love life of the polar bears, and the that status of these great animals in the wild.
