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.

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.

Polar bears are among Hogle Zoo's Big 6 Conservation Species - six species receiving the focus of the zoo's conservation efforts. Between 2003 and 2012, the zoo had no polar bears while Rocky Shores was built.
