Watermelon or Pumpkin


What’s our polar bears' favourite treat? Watermelon! They’re not only sweet and hydrating, but they’re also very fun for our bears to play with before they eat them.



   In summer we give each bear a watermelon a day. When fall swings around and watermelon is no longer in season, pumpkins do the trick. We freeze them to ensure they’re available throughout the winter. To keep our bears in fruit and gourds, it costs approximately $150.00 per month, each. For those who donate, we’ll send you a picture of polar bear enjoying his snack and a t-shirt claiming “I’m just a snack to Ganuk/Henry the polar bear.”
