Bo makes his debut at Wisconsin zoo
MADISON, Wisc. (WTVG) - Toledo Zoo guests immediately fell in love with him, and now a new set of people will get to visit and love Borealis.
“Bo is currently exploring his new space in our award-winning Arctic Passage exhibit while our female polar bear, Berit, is asleep in her winter den. Once Berit wakes up, she will join Bo out on exhibit,” the Henry Vilas Zoo said in a Facebook post.
Bo and Berit were matched up via the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Species Survival Plan, which manages the polar bear populations in its affiliated zoos.
The move made sense for Bo in terms of his age, as most polar bears in the wild will leave their mothers around 2-years-old.
