POWELL, OH (WCMH) – Polar bear cub, Amelia Gray, is celebrating her 1st birthday at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Wednesday.
Amelia was born November 8, to first-time mother Anana last year, and a celebration will be held today, starting at 10:30am at the Polar Frontier portion of the zoo.
On Mother’s Day 2017, the cub received the name “Amelia Gray” after a public naming opportunity, presented by Kroger.
The name Amelia means “defender,” which represents that she is a conservation protector for her species. She also has a distinct patch of gray fur on the left side of her neck. Ever active, Amelia loves to swim and play with her mother.
