Aurora is only 12 months old.  She was found near the airport in Churchill, Manitoba.  Aurora had no hope of surviving without her mother, who was nowhere to be found. 
Thanks to the help of donors, Aurora is getting a second chance at life!
There will be other polar bears like Aurora who need your help.  It's not a matter of if, but when.  For more information, please visit Assiniboine Park Zoo or email.
