Polar Bear Cub

The Polar Bear Cub born at Sea World has taken its first wobbly steps inside the den at Polar Bear Shores.
The cub is progressing well and is beginning to explore the den under the watchful eye of proud mum Liya.
Nearly two months on, the Sea World Polar Bear Keepers have seen positive milestones as the cub continues to grow and develop.

Observed Cub Milestones:


  • Wobbly steps
  • Doubled in size
  • Vocalisations
  • Opening its eyes
  • Its nose is now developing the trademark black pigment
  • Increased strength and mobility
  • The development of an undercoat to keep the cub warm
  • Drinking and sleeping for longer periods of time

Sea World guests can now see precious interactions between Liya and her adorable new-born cub with ‘Cub TV’ in park at the Plaza.

Sea World’s Polar Bears are ambassadors for their species and play a vital role in raising awareness of the effects of global warming. Current research indicates that Polar Bear numbers in the wild are declining, with 20,000 – 25,000 bears remaining worldwide.
