Goodbye to our Visiting Polar Bears

I can’t really tell the difference between polar bears. They all look the same to me. So, I’m not really going to notice the absence of Como’s visiting residents. Still, I think its good news that Suka and Sakari have found a new home in one of my favorite childhood places, Henry Vilas Zoo. The two and a half year-old twin polar bears will be moving to Madison in time for the Memorial Day grand opening of their Arctic Passage exhibit. If you want a last chance to visit the pair, you should schedule it soon. For more information, visit the link above or Como Zoo.

If you are ever visiting the Madison, Wisconsin area, Vilas Park and Zoo and very similar to Como Park and Zoo.  It makes a nice free outing for the family. When I was a kid the zoo had wondering peacocks. I don’t think they do anymore, but I’ve been wanting to go and find out.

This news comes just in time to celebrate International Polar Bear Day, today. If everyone turns their thermostat down by two degrees today, we can show our solidarity in the mission to reduce carbon emissions and help save polar bears and other arctic animals.  I know the whole environmental thing always has political baggage, so feel free to ignore the video I’m putting in below or send me a nastigram in the messages.  I’m okay with that.  But I found this video amazing and it ties in to the whole carbon emissions thing.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
