The couple polar bears, Aurora and Peregrino, were moved from the Russia at the Sao Paulo Aquarium in Sao Paulo state, Brazil in December 2014.
The animals were secretly transferred South American, and for four months they were hidden from the public, until the press was invited to the their public debut in, 14 April 2015.
Then the aquarium besides having imitated ‘Seaworld Orlando’ with its facilities that mimic an airport for the trip to the wild arctic, and made a closed glass enclosure closed and to exibit polar bears, began to tell a story filled with lies.
The first lie was the pair lived together in a Kazan zoo, but according to specialists, the space available to them was insufficient to allow adequate development.

Aurora and Peregrino lived in a Udmurtia Zoo in the Russian city of Izhevs, and this detail was crucial and very important, because that way it was possible to find that these polar bears were born in captivity but free in the wild.
Aurora, a female polar bear, was removed from nature in May 2010, for four months of life together with her sister Victória, after her mother was killed by hunters. They were taken to the zoo Roev Ruckey in Krasnoyarsk, where they were breastfed.
Many newspapers around the world cite the news as The Telegraph. In 2011 The Telegraph share this picture for the orphan sister.
But instead of being reintroduced into the wildlife, they were separated the sisters, and Aurora was sent to the Udmurtia zoo in Izhevsk city, to become the wife of the Peregrino Polar Bear.
In the Izhevsk zoo, Aurora and Peregrino will celebrate their wedding on 2013 (Video), and lived comfortably for many years in a 17.700 ft³ pool until December 2014, being transported from Russia to Brazil.
A couple of polar bears was placed in wooden boxes, where they stayed for five ou six days without water or food. When they were boxed and shipped to “live” in closed indoors aquarium in the Brazil, (this habitat not include an outdoor area), and the enclosure at São Paulo’s aquarium crammed full of their realistic mock-rock when this is what its corrupting influence leads to - which faces an unprecedented and without deadline water crisis in Brazil.
The widespread use of concrete flooring is therefore a serious welfare issue for the polar bears housed at brazilian captive facilities. The couple Polar Bears in an Indoor, Fluorescent-Lit Tank displays sign stereotypic behaviour can include:
- tongue-playing - licking the walls, bars or gates
- neck twisting - unnatural twisting and rolling of the neck, often combined with pacing behaviour
- swaying - head and shoulders or even the whole body
- head bobbing and weaving - moving the head up and down
A constant swimming pattern between two or more points within a pool in which movements are repetitive. Swaying Side to side motion, sometimes causing the front legs to lift, causing a bouncing effect.
Neck turning When an animal throws its head back in a violent circular motion, sometimes during a change of direction during pacing/walking about the cage, but may occur from a stationary position as the animal resumes forward movement.
Like Aurora, dozens of other polar bear orphans were removed from the wildlife to be breastfed and have never been reintroduced to nature.
Protected and under the ownership of parks and zoos that aim only to breed cubsin order to attract more visitors, - while at the same time send the adolescents and adults polar bears to live in other establishments, which aim human entertainment more than the welfare of the species, polar bears get sick, they mutilate themselves and live repeating their movements in the dance of frustration.
Polar bears belong to the Ursidae family, which includes black and brown bears and pandas. For all other members of bears family, there are shrines, where bears are fed, treated and recovered to be reintroduced into the wildlife. For all, except the polar bear, which according to data from the Expert Group on polar bears - PBSG, there has been seen only 8,606 polar bears in the last 10 years.
So we ask the support of all people around the world in order to create the first sanctuary for polar bears; a location within a protected reserve in the tundra, their natural habitat where polar bears and their orphans can live and be fed at home, to return to live on average 40 years, as pointed out by the Russian Geographical Society.
As a statement of Kazan City Hall, the couple of polar bears Aurora and Pilgrim would stay in Brazil only for two years, for which we also ask to leave Brazil immediately, as these few months living on Brazilian landthey have already shown repetitive and stereotyped behaviors due to they are in a completely different environment than living in Russia, which was outdoors.
In Brazil, the polar bears are locked in an aquarium - a five-time smaller environment than living in Russia, and completely unnatural for their species.
Peregrino the heir suffer from Arturo the saddest polar bear.
Arturo the saddest polar bear in world, live and Pelusa very happy in old house.
Aggresive behaviors were observed, in couple polar bears after moving house.
Arturo bites her Pelusa's foot and she dies of infection
The fact that the largest carnivore on Earthis currently starving due to poaching of more than two million seals, the main polar bears’ food; and the mortality due to diseases caused by pollution in the
Arctic polar circle, should be the main campaigns and projects’ theme that envision the climate change issue.
At the current circumstances, the polar bears will be extinct long before the ice of the Arctic melts.

Creation of the first Polar Bear Sanctuary for Aurora and Pilgrim’s return to Russia
In the recent years, the polar bears have been the symbol of several campaigns about how the Arctic is being affected by climate changes. However, even with the threat of polar bears extinction, they continue to die;due to famine and poaching, and the forced imprisonment that is imposed to orphaned cubs, which are taken to zoos where they lose their ability to reproduce and their instincts.
