With the participation of Rosneft, the Rostov-on-Don Zoo completed a major overhaul of the enclosure and pool for the polar bear named Aion-Veles. Today Ion was released onto the renovated site for the first time.

To create more comfortable conditions for the animal, an ice generator that produces snow was installed in the enclosure, the pool bowl was repaired and the water treatment system was updated. The old ceramic tiles on the site were replaced with more wear-resistant concrete,

and “northern decor” – landscapes of the Arctic – was applied to the newly plastered and painted walls.

The walking area for Aion’s friend, the polar bear Comet, is currently being redecorated. In the fall, her enclosure will be completely renovated.

Preservation and protection of the polar bear population is one of Rosneft’s priorities in the field of environmental protection.

The company studies the behavior of the red-listed predator in the wild. Since 2013, all bears in Russian zoos have also been under the care of the Company. Today there are 34 individuals. The company provides their maintenance, feeding, veterinary support, builds and renovates enclosures. With the support of Rosneft, special toys have been developed to increase the physical activity of animals. Several types of products, made of especially durable plastic, are sent to zoos every year.


Since 2016, Rosneft has been conducting research on polar bears as a bioindicator species of Arctic ecosystems. During this time, several large-scale expeditions took place, during which specialists studied the migration routes, numbers and distribution density of these polar predators, and also carried out various analyzes of biological samples. This year, a new stage of research begins: scientists will for the first time carry out an aerial survey of all bears of the Kara subpopulation.
