Fluffy polar bear cub Luna will be the new face of the Buffalo Zoo

(WGRZ) The Buffalo Zoo is moving to the next phase for their new polar bear exhibit.

The Zoo is planning a new 'Arctic Edge' exhibit for their polar bears and other arctic, sub-arctic animals.

Zoo officials also introduced the media to one of their latest additions; a polar bear cub. The cub is nicknamed "Luna" for now. The Buffalo Zoo has plans to launch a naming contest soon.

So far, the Zoo has raised just over $14 million so far and needs to reach $18 million to get the project going. They are now turning to the public to help them raise the remainder of the money to fund the project.
