Bjorn’s story began many years ago in the Arctic North of Canada. Abandoned as a cub, he was discovered and befriended by an Arctic conservationist. Now Bjorn and his companion travel the world making friends, sharing their story and telling people about the fascinating and vulnerable world of the Arctic.
Bjorn is used to people, so if you’re lucky enough to meet him then you’re welcome to give him a pat or a tickle behind the ears – if you’re feeling brave enough.
This magical, interactive performance is part petting zoo, part nature documentary. During the show, you will find out how polar bears survive in the Arctic and get the opportunity to interact with Bjorn – we’re told he’s usually very friendly.
Performances are 30 minutes and take place at 1.30pm, 3.30pm and 5.30pm on Saturday 14th and 11.30am, 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Sunday 15th.
(Don’t worry, even though he seems completely real, Bjorn is an animatronic bear. No children, or bears, will be hurt in this performance)
