Exciting news about the You Connect polar bear
You may recall that You Connect has sponsored its very own polar bear through the WWF, and we promised to keep you up to date with her activity. We also asked you for suggestions for a name – and we had a good number of entries with a variety of interesting names. Our final selection is Bouba Le Blanc. Congratulations to Arnaud Tilquin for winning.
