Ahpun's Celebration of Life, January 20th
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our polar bear, Ahpun. We cared for her since her arrival as an orphan in 1998. She was loved by staff, volunteers and visitors near and far.
Our annual Polar Bear Birthday event will include a Celebration of Life for Ahpun, along with enrichment for Lyutyik, at the zoo on January 20th, 2018 from 11am-1pm.
Learn about the event and art donated by Dianne Barske, Tracey Pilch (art shown in banner above) and Chantelle Marie Swayne for a silent auction in Ahpun's name. Learn about the painting of Ahpun by artist Jon Van Zyle →
