Gaze in Awe
Where else in the Northwest can you come nose-to-nose with a polar bear? Our Arctic Tundra. We’ve created a habitat just like the grassy tundra near Point Hope, Alaska – and filled it with massive muskoxen, an arctic fox and two playful polar bears.

Protecting Polar bears
THE THREAT: Polar bears need sea ice to find their main food – seals. Without it, they either swim to exhaustion or stay on land, too close to humans. But because of climate change, the Arctic sea ice is melting.
TAKE ACTION: It’s not too late. Save sea ice for polar bears by driving less, avoiding idling, lowering your thermostat, using LED bulbs, eating local and minimizing consumption. Together we can do it!
