The Polar Bear’s New Name Is…

The votes are in, explore has deliberated, and polar bear mom X33410 will be renamed Ursula! We think it’s a perfect fit. Meaning “Little Bear”, the name Ursula also evokes the constellation Ursa Minor (She Bear) in the northern sky which features Polaris, the North Star. Our little she bear is an 8-year-old mother to a single yearling cub. Now research scientists and fans alike can follow her on their winter journey over the sea ice via GPS on the Polar Bear Tracker.

Male Tiger Born 1/1/96 Rescued 9/28/11 Arthur is social with his keepers, however he keeps his guard up at times.

Arthur the Tiger

He settled in soon enough as it is hard to resist the charm of the volunteers who bring treats to their newest charges. Arthur loves his brother Andre dearly and the two are often found cuddled up in the same den or lounging together in one of their pools. All three tigers are so aggressive when it comes to food they have to be separated. Hopefully they will one day understand that food is plentiful here and there is no need for a frenzy when it comes to dinner time. In 2003, Wild Animal Orphanage took in the 24 tigers, but big cats have big appetites and by 2010 the Wild Animal Orphanage was in bankruptcy. It took over a year to find permanent homes for all of the cats because it is hard to place a big cat who will cost $10,000 per year in food and vet care.

Photographer finds radiance in wildlife of Arctic tundra

Working as a mining engineer in the remote Chukotka region of Russia, Kislov uses photography as a way to relax on breaks. He's become especially fond of photographing foxes, animals that are naturally curious and have no qualms about getting up-close and personal with a camera shutter. In addition to his fox fascination, Kislov has encountered all kinds of Arctic wildlife over the years, including hares, wolves, bears, herds of caribou, wolverines, weasels and countless bird species.

His own mother, also young and probably a first time parent, was unable to help him. Eventually, an older elephant rushed over to help and freed the youngster.

Caught in a trap in the middle of the woods, a bald eagle would've surely died if nobody saw or did anything, but two brothers wouldn't let that happen.

Bald Eagle Owes His Life To These Heroic Brothers

While out on a hunting trip off Windy Lake in Ontario, two brothers, Michael and Neil Fletcher, spotted the eagle, chained to the ground. Facebook/Michael Fletcher Even tied up, the eagle's sharp beak and talons posed threats to the men and their dog. They placed a sweatshirt over the bird to calm him down. It took a bit of maneuvering, but eventually they managed to free the bird from the trap, intended to catch animals with fur.
