February 27th is International Polar Bear Day I recently learned so we decided to go to the zoo and give Ella her first chance to see a live one. Along with her cousins, we bundled up and made a day of it. It’s often hard to find additional activities during the winter to do with Ella so this was a nice option. Plus she just completed a unit at school about polar bears so the timing was perfect.
We started with an educational talk about polar bears which gave our whole family some insight on everything to know about polar bears. We got to hear from zoo keepers and someone who is actively doing research on them in the wild – pretty neat! After the talk, we were able to go see Juno, a baby polar bear – so cute!
Along with the polar bears who were of course the main attraction and our whole reason for coming in the first place, we were able to explore and see some more interesting animals. Ella loves animals and this trip to the zoo was so much fun for her. All in all a great outing with the family to get some fresh air and learn a thing or two along the way. We’re so lucky to be able to see such interesting animals at the zoo. What a fun filled day despite the chilly weather!
