At 5 a.m. on November 26, 2014, a joyous event took place at Marineland: for the first time in the history of the park, a polar bear was born.
This birth is of great importance because it is the result of the collective effort of all European wildlife parks to safeguard an endangered species in its natural environment: the polar bear.
In fact, Flocke and Rasputin, the polar bear couple that has been living at Marineland since 2010, were brought together as part of the EEP (European Endangered Species Program), so they could reproduce.

As part of the EEP (European Endangered Species Program, a breeding program for the conservation of a species) and in partnership with EAZA (European Association of Zoos and Aquaria), Flocke and Raspoutine gave birth to a baby polar bear.
This happy event renews the park’s success in animal reproduction and species conservation (killer whales, sharks, sea lions, loggerhead turtles, etc.) by welcoming, for the first time ever for Marineland and the Parques Reunidos Group, a baby polar bear!
