      One of the all-time great zoo exhibits, and the underwater tunnel is an absolute amazing piece of wizardry!:)

      Easily the best polar bear exhibit in North America, and it is highlighted by the acrylic tunnel with the bears swimming above the heads of visitors. Part of a 4.5 acre complex with several polar bear habitats (grassy meadow, tundra pack ice, and water) plus a seal pool and arctic fox exhibit.

      Does the Detroit zoo use this exhibit as a platform for discussing climate change issues?
    • snowleopard
      Good question, and I'm guessing that you are referring to the upcoming "Polar Bear Plunge" renovation at the San Diego Zoo which definitely will address climate change. I do recall some information on the environment within the "Arctic Ring of Life" complex, but it opened in 2001 and therefore might need to update its environmental message.
