At first thought, a polar bear in sunny San Diego seems curiously out of place. But with the San Diego Zoo's Conrad Prebys Polar Bear Plunge, you'll discover that polar bears are right at home, where every day is an Arctic summer day.
Our three adult polar bears are Kalluk and Tatqiq, a brother-and-sister pair, and Chinook, a female. Outdoor viewing follows the water level up to the beach area. A large sandbox and open spaces on the banks of the Plunge also allow the bears to dig around or maybe take a nap—just like they would in the wild.
Polar Bear Plunge is one of the largest polar bear exhibits in the world. It's wet and it's wild—polar bear style!
