You have until Fall to see the polar bears at the Columbus Zoo. In a statement today, the Zoo said that Nuniq, Neva, and Amelia Gray—the only polar bear cubs born at a North American zoological facility in 2016—are scheduled to move from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium this fall.

Females Amelia Gray and her half-sister, Neva, will both move to The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. The announcement of Neva’s twin brother Nuniq’s new home will be made soon.

Exact moving dates have not been set, so enjoy seeing them while you can.

With the move of the young bears, there is potential to welcome a male polar bear to be introduced to the remaining females, Aurora and Anana.
