RALEIGH, N.C. — 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.
