The Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster has launched a campaign to fund the rescue of a polar bear from sweltering conditions in Mexico.
Victoria Whittam reports.
The Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster has launched a campaign to fund the rescue of a polar bear from it's inadequate enclosure in Mexico.
Experts say Yupi, who is 22, is suffering because her concrete surroundings and the heat do not allow her to behave normally.
The Yorkshire Wildlife park, who rescued a pride of lions from Romania three years ago, have already started building her an enclosure and are trying to raise the £150,000 needed to bring Yupi here.
Park Director, Cheryl Williams says things are in motion to bring the bear to Yorkshire.
Work is underway at Yorkshire Wildlife Park building a new polar bear enclosure.
The park are trying to raise money to bring a polar bear, Yupi, from Mexico, where it is too warm for him.
Yorkshire Wildlife Park is launching a bid to rescue a polar bear from soaring temperatures and a concrete enclosure in a Mexican zoo.
The award winning park has offered to rehome long suffering Yupi into a spectacular new polar bear centre, which is already under construction.
YWP is aiming to raise £150,000 towards the cost of creating the spectacular new reserve, which will be available to Polar Bears in need of rescuing.
The park, which rescued a pride of lions from Romania 3 years ago, decided to build the centre after being approached to see if they would offer a home to Yupi from Morelia Zoo.
Since then YWP has been consulting with experts worldwide to bring Polar Bears back to England for the first time in over 20 years.
Yupi has been at Morella since 1992, after being captured in the wild as a cub. Her concrete enclosure has little shade, and little stimulation .
The soaring temperatures are difficult for a polar bear to deal with as they easily overheat.
Campaigners have been trying to encourage the zoo to move her to a more appropriate home for many years.
Now YWP is building a unique Polar Bear reserve, which is due to be completed early in 2014. The park is still waiting an official response to their offer to rehome Yupi.
A rare animal has arrived at Yorkshire Wildlife Park near Doncaster, and is already a visitor favourite.
Giant Anteater Kounany, who is 18 months old, travelled from Montpellier Zoo in France.
She is part of the breeding European programme - as there are only 24 Anteaters in the whole of the UK.
The bigs cats of Yorkshire Wildlife Park were out enjoying the snow as the award winning attraction opened to visitors. Amur Tigers Vladimir and Sayan felt completely at home in the freshly laid snow as the icy blast covering the UK has swept in from their native Siberia.
Visitors were able to watch the pair frolicking from the 150m walkway above the spectacular Land of the Tigers, the first of its kind in Europe.
Giraffes are the latest animals to be joining Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster - and will live in a £350,000 state-of-the-art enclosure. The first four giraffes which will include two endangered Rothschild's Giraffe, will arrive in October.
The innovative design of their enclosure, which can house up to 16 giraffes, will be ground breaking - with an indoor viewing platform at ground level where visitors will be only 1m away from the animals as well as a eye to eye viewing from a 8m high platform.
– Director Cheryl Williams
"We are absolutely delighted to announce that the new Giraffe enclosure will be opening soon look forward to welcoming the giraffes which include endangered Rothschilds...Whilst the enclosure will hold a bachelor group of males initially, we hope in time that we will be able to set up a breeding group in the future."
Monty had never seen another camel before he was rescued and circus life didn't quite agree with him. But now he loves his new-found freedom - and friends - and he is learning how to be a "normal" camel at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
He follows in the footsteps of Anne the ageing elephant, who was also released by Bobby Roberts travelling circus after complaints over her welfare.
