Join us for a Celebration of Ahpun's life at our annual Polar Bear Birthday event on January 20th, 2018 from 11am to 1pm.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved polar bear, Ahpun. Zoo staff has had the privilege of taking care of her since her arrival as a cub in 1998, and are devastated with this loss. Ahpun was in good condition and had shown no signs of poor health at anytime leading up to her death. A necropsy was performed by veterinary staff and we are awaiting final results as to the cause of her death. We know Ahpun was well-loved by our community, so this year's Polar Bear Birthday will also include a celebration of life for her at the zoo on January 20th, 2018 from 11am to 1pm.
