Nora the polar bear will be moving from Portland to Salt Lake City, Utah this fall, the Oregon Zoo announced Wednesday.

Nora and Hope, two unrelated bears, who are both just over a year old, will soon swim together at the zoo.

In September 2016, Nora arrived at the Oregon Zoo where she was expected to bond with Tasul, one of the oldest polar bears on the planet.

Zoo officials tell The Blade ( ) that the bears are important for breeding purposes and for research on the effects of climate change.

Greater Manchester Police says a 25-year-old man was arrested in the city Sunday on suspicion of terrorist offenses. Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton of Libyan descent, killed 22 people on May 22 at an Ariana Grande concert.

Nora was born at Ohio's Columbus Zoo on November 6, 2015. The Oregon Zoo said they couldn't bring Hope to Oregon because of future construction on the zoo's new polar bear habitat.

The zoo will send keepers to both the Toledo and OR zoos to spend time with the bears before they are moved.

The beloved bear will relocate to Utah's Hogle Zoo in the fall.

A polar bear raised in OR will be relocated to Utah this fall.

El representante de la artista, Scooter Braun, también publicó un comunicado en el que dijo: "Nuestros corazones están rotos ". Miley Cyrus y otros intérpretes se solidarizaron con las víctimas y con su colega y amiga Ariana Grande .

"From the time she was a week old, Nora has interacted nearly exclusively with people", Cutting said. "The two bears were born less than a month apart and they have a similar youthful energy".

Hope, named after Point Hope, Alaska, was born at Ohio's Toledo Zoo on December 3, 2015.

The recommendation to pair Nora and Hope came from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

The Species Survival Plan prioritizes putting young animals together at the point where they are mature enough to leave their mothers. In the wild, young bears leave their mothers at around age 2. "Our leadership in the zoo community toward conservation has helped secure us as a flagship institution for such a high-profile species as polar bears".
