A fourth member has joined the polar bear family in Cochrane.
Bisitek, a 27-year-old female, has moved from the Toronto Zoo to the Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat and Heritage Village to retire.
Director of conservation Patricia Morin said it will likely be around two weeks before "Bisi" is ready to join Nanook, Aurora and Nakita and meet the public.
The Toronto Zoo has closed its polar bear habitat for renovations that will be finished in late 2009.
