Without the phenomenon of Knut and Thomas hamlet, there would have been anyway, never as a attention for a polar bear baby. But the attention is just right, stress to the animal Park, and Hertha-chief, because Hertha is an Ambassador for the global warming to endangered species. According to a UN study, the Arctic will be in ten years, ice-free in summer. "So the life would be the basis of the polar bears way," says curator Sicks.

"Greta" was among the proposals is very popular
Antje Kapek, group leader of the Greens said: "it Is a really nice gesture of Hertha – but Greta, I would have found also a strong character." Clearly, what is meant is the 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg from Sweden. The Name Greta was among the more than 5000 proposals will be quite popular.
