Additional Information

Very little is known about the polar bears owned by Haichang Ocean Parks.  They often move bears between their various facilities but we believe that Yang Yang is unlikely to have been, or to be, moved given her advanced years.  So far as we know she is still alive although we have no located any recent information on her.
