With the recent passing of Debby, the Assiniboine Park Zoo’s matriachal polar bear, a number of Facebook groups have sprung up to allow people to remember her.

Facebook Groups in Honour of Debby:

Members of these groups are from all around the world and such international attention seems appropriate as polar bears have become such an iconic species in the fight to save endangered species world wide. Debby’s passing was even note worthy enough to be mentioned on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update.
