Victor arrived in August and quickly settled in at YWP, which has built one of the world’s largest polar bear reserves.

The Project Polar enclosure spans 10 acres - about 8.5 football pitches - and is divided into four sections, featuring landscaped hills, valleys, and lakes with water up to 8m deep.
