Aurora has a similar story to Togiak; she was discovered on the runway of the military base, her mother and littermates nowhere to be found. She was relocated to AWCC in 2017. Aurora was named after the northern lights, known as the Aurora Borealis. Aurora is smaller in size and has distinguished colored markings on her body.
