Mary Jo Ola was at Henry Vilas Zoo Wednesday morning to share a preview of the new Arctic Passage that opens this weekend.
The Arctic Passage is the zoo's biggest renovation in its history. Crews broke ground on the project in March 2014. The passage spans nearly two acres of land and features environments for twin polar bears Sakari and Suri; and a pair of grizzly sisters known as the Grizzly Girls; and harbor seals.
A restaurant in the addition offers diners a look at the polar bears, who can also watch you have your meal.
