Our crush of the year, 2nd semester? Only one. We want to help once more Pizza, the polar bear. We are engaged on its safety and wellbeing.

Pizza, the sadest polar bear of the world. Living in the  Grandview Aquarium, Guangzhou, China.

Very sad. Shocking. Help ! Urso polar 'mais triste do mundo' não vai ter nova casa 

A tragic polar bear trapped in a mall in Guangzhou China has been offered a new home after his heartbreaking plight made worldwide headlines.
Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster, England, is making this public offer to Grandview in Guangzhou, China after being alerted to the issue by Animals Asia and its ongoing campaign to close the facility.
Animals Asia has collected over half a million signatures demanding the closure of the Grandview Aquarium, which includes the bear called Pizza, as its star attraction. The campaign has featured on CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera and in newspapers across the globe with the media dubbing Pizza, “the world’s saddest bear”.

Unfortunately, the Chinese aquarium said it has no need for foreign interference, after activists offered to move the animal to a British zoo. And Pizza lives always in horrible conditions. 
Later in November global anger at the plight of 'the saddest polar bear in the world', who was caged in appalling conditions in a Chinese shopping mall, has borne fruit, with the mall owners agreeing to send him back to the ocean park where he was born. 
Earlier this year a viral video of the three-year-old bear, called Pizza, slumped on his side, her mouth quivering, broke the hearts of animal lovers around the world. 

'No amount of renovation could ever make a shopping mall a suitable place for this animal, and to send him back now would be cruel and heartless.'

Qin Xiaona, director of Capital Animal Welfare Association, said: 'It's a good decision, the right decision for Pizza, but it's not the end. 

'Temporary is not good enough. Now we hope that Grandview will learn from this episode and move Pizza permanently so that he never again has to endure the dreadful life in a shopping mall. We hope so too.

May the New Year be a polar defender!
