  • Facts

With his final veterinary examination complete, Henry continues his new adventures as he explores the beautiful Ontario outdoors.

Henry’s new home is situated on five acres of northern Ontario terrain, including forests and lakes, with access to three state of the art enclosures, equipped with a water source to cool off, trees, rocks and natural vegetation.

This week, Henry has even experienced fresh snowfall. That’s right, our playful polar bear is embracing Canada’s beautiful cool temperatures and winter weather. Not only have we caught some great snaps of him rolling about in this recent light dusting of snow, but the Cochrane team have been feeding and training out in this weather as he adapts to the cool temperatures. And don’t worry, they’ve let us know, there’ll be plenty more to come.

The bear keepers are also making sure Henry feels right at home. He’s being spoilt with special treats, including seal oil, custard and strawberry ice cream.

The Cochrane bear habitat is the only facility in the world dedicated to Polar bears, providing Henry with the best care to further his development. Despite moving to the Cochrane facility, Henry will remain a part of Sea World’s Polar bear population, and our dedicated Polar bear team will continue to have an integral role in his ongoing care.
