Buffalo Zoo Introduces New Polar Bear [VIDEO]

Buffalo Zoo

The Buffalo Zoo is one of only two zoos in North American that have given birth to a polar bear cub in 2012. The cub, who has yet to be named, is in need of a new habitat, and the Buffalo Zoo has been raising funds for the new enclosure and a new entrance.

According to WKBW, “Over the past two years, the Zoo has raised $14 million of the $18 million needed to build a new entrance and polar bear exhibit. The zoo is now asking residents of Western New York and surrounding area to help raise the remaining $4 million.”

The Zoo has introduced the new cub, who is being raised by vet tech Alice Rohauer, to the public via closed-circuit TV Monday through Friday from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m., but it is still too young to be in a habitat seen by the public. The polar bear cub was born at the end of November right here in Buffalo.

Donors can pledge today by texting “zoobear” to 56512, calling (716) 995-6131, or visiting www.buffalozoo.org.
