Hello… I see you. All photos: RZSS.

The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland has shared adorable new images of the UK’s youngest polar bear at Highland Wildlife Park in Kincraig.

With a week to go, one lucky winner will have the chance to meet and name the three-month-old, after a raffle was launched last week to help build the Scottish Wildlife Discovery Center in attraction.

Every donation made to the raffle will be doubled thanks to one of the wildlife conservation charity’s generous supporters, with the winner helping the keepers choose the perfect name for the three-month-old buck.

The little one is settling into its new environment but has not yet been named.

The little one was born in December to mum Victoria and dad Arktos.

The Scottish Wildlife Discovery Center will cost £5.6 million in total and is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Natural and Cultural Heritage Fund award intentions, led by NatureScot and supported by the European Development Fund (ERDF), and Highlands and Islands Enterprise, as well as the Postcode People’s Lottery and SSE Renewables players.

An RZSS spokesperson said: “Public viewing is still closed to give Victoria and her youngster plenty of peace and quiet.

“In a few weeks, the Cub will be introduced to his large outdoor enclosure, where the public can try to spot him.”

The winner will get to help name the little one, go behind the scenes to meet the newcomer and his mother, and enjoy a two-night stay at Macdonald Aviemore Resort for four people.
