The Polar Bear Project
The Polar Bear Project at the Alaska Zoo will provide a premier habitat and advance the scientific and behavioral knowledge of polar bears in Alaska. The project will be built in two phases. We are currently asking for support of Phase I, which will provide a Transition Center to take in rescued cubs from the North Slope. This phase will also include a maternity den.

These limited edition prints of "Binky" the polar bear were designed by the late Alaskan master painter Fred Machetanz. He gave them to us for use in raising funds for the zoo and we think the Polar Bear Project is the perfect cause. There are only 100 of these prints, so order yours before they are gone!
Prints are 16x20 inches and unframed. Prints will ship rolled in a shipping tube.
Price per print: $90.00 (includes all shipping costs)
