We Are Poles Apart

We are all in a constant state of ‘snow alert’ at the moment, with the inclement conditions threatening to lead to a white Easter.

We may need to change seasons, as spring is rapidly becoming the new winter and the artic conditions are certainly becoming ‘second nature’ to us all.

Indeed, it appears that thoughts of the artic really are being felt in one part of the Scottish Highlands at the moment, as people have gathered for a momentous occasion.

The reason… the UK's first polar bear cub to be born in 25-years has gone on public display.

The cub was born at the Highland Wildlife Park, near Kincraig, in December and its enclosure had been closed off to the general public until this point.

It has been confirmed that the cub will stay with its mother at the park for an minimum of the two years, yet that has not stopped the expected stampede of visitors and the park is bracing itself for a ‘crazy’ amount of viewings.

The assembled media were afforded the first glances of the cub on Tuesday last week, with temperatures at an appropriate minus three degrees.

The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland are now hoping that the arrival of their historic cub will help to raise awareness of the dangers to polar bears in the wild.

We may be always busy in SK with our day to day activities of high level cleaning, cooking equipment and extraction units, yet we will never fail to ‘extract’ wonderful stories from around the globe and we pride ourselves in always being in ‘pole’ position to do so. In fact, we will warm you up at any time of the year!
