The Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg will soon be hosting Polar Bears. The New 40 million dollar International Polar Bear Conservation Center is going to be the first of its kind in the world.

The center will take in orphan cubs from the wild until they are old enough to be relocated. Officials say they hope to open the center by September 2013.
