    Media reports are claiming that an Atlantic puffin, hatched and hand reared at the zoo is the first of its species to be raised in a European zoo.
    (Can this be right?)

    Das Berner Papageitaucher-Küken - Bern - derbund.ch

    The pair of Ussuri brown bears "Mischa" and "Mascha", donated to the zoo by Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, have moved into the first part of their new exhibit.

    According to someone on the German forums, the only succesfull breeder in Europe was untill recently a breeder (birdfarm Hof Bremehr) in Germany...

    So it seems to be correct?

    Can you be more specific on the number of puffins?
    It seems their new exhibit is working for this difficult species?

    No I can´t :(. I've the information from their website and here no numbers are mentioned but seen the fact that they hatched during 2 different monthts, they at least should have 2 chicks !
