PO­LAR BEAR HABI­TAT

More of Our Canada - - Bulletin Board -

Did you know that the one and only hu­man-care fa­cil­ity in the world ded­i­cated solely to po­lar bears is in Canada? Yes, in­deed. The Cochrane Po­lar Bear Habi­tat, lo­cated in Cochrane, Ont., pro­vides sanc­tu­ary to po­lar bears that have been orphaned, res­cued or moved from other fa­cil­i­ties. Of­fer­ing a habi­tat that is as close to the bears’ nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment as pos­si­ble, this research and ed­u­ca­tion cen­tre also helps peo­ple learn about the care and con­ser­va­tion of po­lar bears. The Learn­ing Cen­tre is the fo­cal point of the habi­tat, where you can watch the bears swim in their pool through an ob­ser­va­tion win­dow, and ex­plore in­ter­ac­tive ex­hibits to learn more about them.
