Here I am - Scraps & Stitches
Here I am
with more Polar bears.

But there's more to the scenario than meets the eye, in fact the children are separated from certain death by 10-inch thick plexiglas.



Both children and bears are actually very safely taking part in an amazing initiative by the owners of Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat, in Ontario, Canada,
The sanctuary takes in only bears rescued from the wild and through letting visitors get so close they hope to foster understanding and reduce hunting in the wild

Awww! If only the world was so perfect that they could get that close without the glass! Fabulous pictures - thank you.

Those pictures are just amazing. What an experience that would be. And the glass is practically invisible.

They are just wonderful. Gave me a bit of a start to begin with until I read the artical, and it said about the glass.
Would love to visit this place when I'm next in Canada

Wouldn't though. I must think about trying to go here when I'm next in Canada. But I will look from dry land, so not into swimming.
