The Highland Wildlife Park has shared footage of Hamish and his mum enjoying icy treats to celebrate International Polar Bear Day.

The two-year-old bear can be seen frolicking in the snow with his snack in the adorable clips.

The pair are part of the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP), which is working to safeguard the vulnerable species from extinction.

Keith Gilchrist, animal collection manager said: “A critical part of our role as a wildlife conservation charity is education.

“Hamish, and the rest of our bears, have made a tremendous impression on our visitors.

“They help to highlight the threats many species face in the wild and the changes we can undertake to really make a difference.”
