— Wilhelm the polar bear is back on view at the North Carolina Zoo.

The bear was off the exhibit during construction that is part of a larger project for the adjacent sea lion exhibit. The male and female sea lions moved temporarily to the polar bear area and Wilhelm stayed in a holding area while the work was done.

The sea lions' habitat is complete and the sea lions, along with Wilhelm, are in their original, renovated exhibits.

    Saw Wilhelm this weekend. He was just lounging around. Love the zoo, it is a great family outing.
