Morelia Zoo, Mexico: Yupi should be relocated to a better facility in a more suited climate.

When Yupi arrived at Morelia Zoo, she was placed in a former grizzly bear pen. She still lives in this same enclosure today, which is very small and barren, the surface is made entirely of concrete with no soft surfaces to walk on or lie in. Additionally, Yupi is held in a small holding pen for approx. 17 hours every day, this pen is tiny with no natural daylight. Yupi’s daily regime is routine and predictable, with little to no environmental enrichment or stimulation. Polar bears require large spaces and a complex natural terrain, giving them choice and control over their daily lives.

Morelia Zoo is located in the central part of Mexico, which means that Yupi is exposed to a tropical climate, with temperatures remaining high throughout the year, dramatically different to the cold climate of Alasaka. Polar bears are not physically adapted to live in hot climates. Under their thick fur their skin is black, facilitating the retention of heat from the sun; therefore polar bears can easily become overheated, particularly in alien, hot climates.

I believe that Yupi should be relocated to a better facility in a more suited climate.

      Wen schon unschuldig gefangen dann bitte Artgerecht. Kann sich das der Zoo nicht leisten müssen Sie dafür sorgen das er wo anders Unterkkommt um Artgerecht gehalten zu werden. Armer Eisbär.
