The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has announced that the Buffalo Zoo, in Buffalo, New York is the planned destination, for the near future, for an orphaned polar bear cub found near Point Lay, Alaska, on March 12. The three-to-four month-old male, named Kali (pronounced cully - the Inupiat name for Point Lay), is currently receiving care at the Alaska Zoo but is expected to be safely transported to the Buffalo Zoo sometime this spring, pending final approvals and the health of the cub.Kali will be introduced to the Buffalo Zoo’s female polar bear cub, born on November 27, 2012. She is being hand-raised by the Zoo’s veterinary and keeper staff due to inadequate care by the cub’s mother, Anana. The orphaned cub’s planned journey from Point Lay to Buffalo is the product of collaboration among the Alaska Zoo, the Buffalo Zoo, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and the AZA’s Polar Bear Species Survival Plan® management group.
