HAPPY SIX MONTHS TO PRIVATE JUNO!

TORONTO, ON, Wednesday, May 11, 2016: Born on Remembrance Day 2015, Juno was named in honour of Juno Beach and was adopted by the Canadian Army as the first polar bear to "bear" an official rank.

She continues to grow into a very independent cub who loves to explore her exhibit and wrestle with any toys wrapped in blankets. She now weighs 30.6kg, and eats three meals a day either in a bowl or in enrichment items to keep her stimulated and engaged. These meals include formula, meat, smelt and seal oil. The Keepers continue to incorporate her into the behavioural husbandry program with daily training sessions, and she now also has the option to swim in her little pool in the polar bear maternity habitat.

Visit her daily from 9:30am to 7:00pm and wish her a happy six month bear-thday!

You can vote on your favourite name until 12:00 pm on Tuesday, May 17, 2016
