Luna and Sakari, the celebrity Buffalo Zoo Polar Bears will be going on their first date this weekend and this is not a joke.

The two polar bears who were paired together on purpose to eventually mate and preserve the vulnerable polar bear species. The duo will tidey up and go on their 'first date' this Saturday, February 11. In honor of Valentines Day weekend when it is expected that most humans of WNY will celebrate, the Buffalo Zoo is no exception.

Polar bear keepers have planned a first date for Luna and Sakari. Although, the two bears have been together for a couple weeks now, as part of the introduction process, this special first date will consist of “love themed”
snacks, keeper talks, and special enrichment throughout the day.

Remember, the Buffalo Zoo is open year round and 2017 memberships are on sale now!
