The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden welcomes Anana, a 16-year-old polar bear from Buffalo Zoo. After settling in behind the scenes and getting a clean bill of health from Zoo vets, the new female got to explore her new outdoor digs for the first time. Anana is here on a breeding recommendation from the polar bear Species Survival Plan (SSP), the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) advisory group that manages the polar bear population in North American Zoos. She will be introduced to the Zoo’s male bear, 26-year-old Little One, in a few weeks and, if all goes well, she could have cubs in the fall.
