The petition has already existed for a year, but has now been relaunched. “Let’s free the polar bears from the Puglia zoo” is an appeal launched in July 2022 by the association Meta Parmaonline at change.org and which calls directly into question the Zoosafari of Fasano.

“What are two polar bears doing in a zoo in Puglia? – The animal rights activists are now asking – Our thoughts go to Marissa and her daughter, two polar bears locked up in the Fasano Zoosafari. Polar bears, as the name suggests, need polar temperatures, destroying their habitat or forcing them to live far from it, is a real havoc”.

Meta Parma’s appeal has been launched again considering the excessive heat of the last few days, and the consequent high temperatures reached everywhere, in Puglia as in the rest of Italy.

“In the South we now come to touch i 50 degrees, and these poor bears are forced to endure temperatures that are infernal for them – we read on Change.org – These poor bears are a symbol, animals should not live locked up in zoos; we will continue to launch the appeal for the release of two polar bears, hoping that something will move for them”.

The petition has exceeded 55,000 signatures, the animal welfare association intends to achieve the goal for another reason: “We hope they don’t have to die in a zoo, as happened in Arthur, the saddest polar bear in the world who died of heat in a zoo in Argentina. All public opinion moved for Arturo’s release, but the zoo didn’t want to release him and the bear finally died in his boiling golden cage. We don’t want any more Arturos!”.
