The Virginia Zoo in Norfolk announced an auction for someone to choose the name of its new siamang baby.

As of Monday, the leading bid was $625 by someone named Bernard David, according to the zoo’s auction site.

Money raised from the auction will benefit the Virginia Zoo’s Act for Wildlife conservation fund, the auction site said.

“A siamang birth is an important addition to this critically endangered lesser ape,” Greg Bockheim, the Virginia Zoo executive director, said in a statement.

“Watching a baby grow and engage with its family is special for all of us.”
