Stealing hearts that is. It seems that everyone in Western New York is excited about the baby cub named Luna, coming to town. West Herr is no different, and we are proud to support the Buffalo Zoo’s effort in raising funds and awareness through the construction of a new exhibit. Their goal has been to raise $18 million to build a new Entry Plaza and Arctic Edge, a state of the art polar bear exhibit. Currently, with the help of West Herr’s $100,000 donation, the campaign stands at just over $14 million!
Some fun facts about the new exhibit:
- Replicates the frozen climate of the Arctic Circle
- More than 60,000 square feet
- Natural landscape with two saltwater pools
- Underwater viewing!
- Conservation center for enhanced educational opportunities
You can even donate to the Arctic Edge Exhibit through a variety of ways:
