On March 26, a polar bear named Kolymana, a ward of Rosneft, took her newborn cubs for a walk from the closed part of the enclosure for the first time. The Yakutsk Zoo “Orto-Doidu” had been waiting for this event for several months – the cubs were born in early December.

Zoo staff did not disturb the family and watched the mother bear and her cubs using video cameras. The gender of the bears was identified only now, when the kids went for their first walk: they are male and female. According to zoologists, cubs differ in behavior: the girl is active and active, while the boy is calmer and spends more time next to his mother.

The Rosneft company and the Orto-Doidu Zoo are announcing a naming contest for bear cubs. Proposals are accepted by email In the subject of the letter you must indicate a couple of names, and in the letter itself – your data (name, phone number and locality). The most successful, in the opinion of the jury, options will be put to a public vote. The results of the competition will be announced on April 13 at the Rosneft pavilion at VDNKh. The winners will receive memorable souvenirs from the Rosneft Company.


The inhabitants of the Yakut zoo – a pair of polar bears Kolyman and Lomonosov – are giving birth to offspring for the third time. The orphaned Kolymana was found in 2012 on the Bear Islands archipelago in the Nizhnekolymsk region of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). Lomonosov was born in the Leningrad Zoo, from where he was brought to Yakutsk. With the support of Rosneft, an additional enclosure with a den was built at the zoo for the female bear, which is necessary for raising cubs, since in the wild the female raises the cubs alone. In 2016, Khaarchaana was born to the bears – she now lives in the Leningrad Zoo, and in 2019 Almaz is the favorite of Khabarovsk residents.

Preservation and protection of the polar bear population is one of the areas of Rosneft’s environmental agenda. The company studies the population of Red Book predators in their natural habitat – conducting expeditions along the Russian coast of the Arctic Ocean. Since 2013, all polar bears living in Russian zoos have been under the care of the Company. Today the Company patronizes, together with newborn twins, 34 polar bears in 16 zoos across the country. Rosneft fully provides their maintenance, feeding, veterinary support, as well as updating their enclosures, conducting scientific research and educational programs.
