Swimming with polar bears ? There's a place in the world where children can swim among polar bears. Since July 2004, in the little town of Cochrane , northern Ontario , you can visit the Polar Bear Habitat.
It's a kind of local zoo where people can live the once-in-a-lifetime experience of an outdoor swim with polar bears. Of course, the humans are in a different pool, separated from the bears' habitat by just a layer of glass.
