Am I seeing things?

How brilliant is this?  It looks as if these kids are swimming with polar bears, but in reality there is a glass screen between them.  These two female bears, Aurora and Nikita, live at the Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat in Canada where they were brought as cubs after a hunter shot their mother.  Letting visitors get this close to the bears is all part of a campaign to end hunting.  Fantastic idea, although Noodles thinks her knees would still be knocking despite the glass screen
