Cub Siku 'thriving'

SIKU, a polar bear cub born at the Scandinavian Wildlife Park, Denmark, in November, has gained popularity through the Internet. Since Siku's mother had not produced milk for three years, the park staff tried to bottle feed it, and now he weighs about 3.5 kilograms, which is "thriving" for everyone who's taking care of him.

Siku, means 'sea ice' in Greenlandic language, according to the Wildlife Park. The sea ice is the most important element for the survival of polar bears. With the largest polar bear facilities in the world, the park hopes that Siku will become an "ambassador for his wild cousins living in the Arctic" and raise people's attention to the endangered species.
