Hudson the Polar Bear Has Arrived in Winnipeg

The Assiniboine Park Zoo is pleased to report that Hudson, the 15 month old polar bear from the Toronto Zoo, has arrived in Winnipeg safe and sound and has moved into his temporary home at the International Polar Bear Conservation Centre (IPBCC).

“Hudson is in good spirits after making the trip from Toronto”, said Tim Sinclair-Smith, Director of Zoological Operations at the Assiniboine Park Zoo. “All indications are that it will be a smooth transition as he adapts to his new surroundings.”
Hudson is the first polar bear to make his temporary home in the IPBCC and the first identified inhabitant for the Zoo’s upcoming Journey to Churchill exhibit opening in 2014. The outdoor enclosure at the IPBCC has been renovated and expanded to specifically accommodate polar bears and is three times its original size.
Now that Hudson has arrived at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, he will spend some time adapting to his new home and is not available for photography or viewing at this time. The Assiniboine Park Zoo is still working to confirm a date for when Hudson will be on exhibit to the public. More information will be made available as soon details are confirmed.
