Happy Birthday, Snowflake!

December 7, 2016

Early last week, one of our female Polar Bears at SeaWorld San Diego, Snowflake, celebrated her 21st birthday 

Happy Birthday, Snowflake! 

Snowflake was born at the Buffalo Zoo in New York and came to San Diego in 1997. 

If one of the bears is wet and dirty from exploring the habitat, you can bet that it’s Snowflake. She picks up new training behaviors quickly. 

Animals like Snowflake are very important members of the SeaWorld family becuase serve as ambassadors for the wild counterparts. As an animal ambassador Snowflake helps create awareness of the problems that polar bears are facing in the wild.
