Henry Vilas Zoo said it's expecting the arrival of a new female polar bear, Berit, from the Cincinnati Zoo. Berit will soon join Suka in the Dane County zoo's Arctic Passage.

Last week, male polar bear Sakari left Henry Vilas Zoo for Buffalo. Buffalo polar bear Anana will make her way to the Cincinnati Zoo. Officials say the three-way zoo shuffle was arranged to help polar bears breed and conserve the species.
