The only place to see polar bears in Australia is at the Sea World Theme Park
located on the Gold Coast.
Sea World Theme Park
Polar bears, endangered in the wild due to global warming, roam the wilderness of the North Pole, and the bears living at Sea World have come all the way from there, or from other zoos around the world.
Polar Bear enclosure: deep icy pools with plenty of place to rest and get some exercise while visitors can enjoy marvelous outdoor and indoor views
Living in a beautiful enclosure with plenty of icy water to swim in, the polar bears
are fascinating animals. You can't really tell how magnificent these animals are till you actually see one up close. With beautiful white fur, they look cuddly and friendly.
Poster Boards with plenty of background information about Polar Bears
Their presence at Sea World speaks volumes about their plight in the wild. The aim is to highlight the ways in which human beings can help these animals by protecting the environment and the planet that we share not only with these but with all other creatures in the world. There are posters with information about polar bears and plenty of friendly keepers to answer any questions you might have. But the best way to appreciate these animals is to see them with your own eyes and take in their beauty. It is definitely a sight to behold.
Henry's Family Tree
The most exciting news about the polar bear family living at Sea World is that it has a brand new addition, with the birth of a cub on 9 May 2013, who has lovingly been christened Henry. Henry is the first cub to be born in captivity at Sea World and is so adorable that visiting the park to see him is definitely worth it.
Playful Henry with his mom Liya
While we were visiting, Henry was ever so playful, under the watchful eye of his Mom, Liya. Henry has a great fan following and children were lining up to buy Henry look-alike stuffed animals, t-shirts, and other souvenirs. The children could just not stop talking about the gorgeous polar bear cub.
My daughter bought herself a stuffed toy Henry, whereas my son was quite happy with a photo to remember his visit with the Polar Bears
