Arturo, the polar bear at the Mendoza zoo in Argentina !

Hope we can work together and use our human “intelligence” to find the best solution for him, for Arturo.  And for all the animals that deserve to live free, with respect and well.

Would you like to live in a prison?  or a cage for all your life?

Well, animals do not like zoos, circuses or the black market, neither !!!

Free Arturo, Argentina's only polar bear, from living hell!!!

Arturo the polar bear lives in the Mendoza Zoo in Argentina where he is going slowly mad. Arturo must be released immediately from the Zoo!

Two years ago, Arturo’s long-time companion, a polar bear named Pelusa, died and he has since had not contact with other bears. In fact, Arturo is displaying many signs of depression and “abnormal behaviour,” baring his teeth while pacing and rocking from side to side.

On top of this, Arturo is living in extreme heat in Argentina. He has no opportunities to act as a normal polar bear and his only access to water is a pool 50cms deep. There is a real risk of death from hyperthermia for Arturo.

Despite this, the Zoo has blocked Arturo’s transfer to Canada’s International Polar Bear Conservation Centre as they say he is too old to travel. 

But if Arturo stays where he is, he is condemned to an unbearable existence for many years to come. Something must be done to help him!! Transferring him to Canada may well be this poor polar bear’s only chance of a few years of decent living.

Help Free Arturo, The World’s Saddest Polar Bear

For the last 20 years, Arturo the polar bear has been caged up in the Medoza Zoo in Argentina, where temperatures can reach up to 104F (40C). And just 2 years ago, Arturo lost his only polar bear companion. 

Arturo is not a tourist attraction, and he deserves to live his last years free and in a colder climate where he can be happy. The zoo puts him at risk of dying of hyperthermia while forcing him to live alone, with no wildlife companions. 

For today’s Daily Action, sign the petition demanding the release of Arturo the polar bear.
