Sadly, Siku’s mother couldn’t produce enough milk to feed him. So staff at the Denmark zoo will hand raise him to maturity, then return him to the wildlife park’s polar bear facility, where he’ll join four other polar bears already living there.

The zoo hopes little Siku can be an ambassador for his counterparts in the wild by helping draw attention to the disappearing natural habitats of polar bears. There are an estimated 20,000 to 25,000 polar bears left in the wild, and scientists fear they could become extinct within 40 years if the Arctic Circle continues to shrink.
