BUFFALO, New York (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.
