AMONG ALL the various prize-winning animals to marvel over at the Great Yorkshire Showground this weekend, one furry exhibit that has stolen plenty of attention is Bjorn the Polar Bear.

His performances alongside narrator ‘Ursula the Arctic Conservationist’ at Countryside Live have drawn crowds, giving visitors young and old the chance to hear more about a species that resides in much cooler climes.

Some of the proceeds raised from appearances of Bjorn at events across the country are donated to Greenpeace by the bear’s artistic creators at Los Kaos Ltd.
