GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The red panda cubs born in July at John Ball Zoo now officially have names.

They’ll be called Rose, Ruby and Willow, the zoo said Friday.

The zoo held a naming contest that also raised funds for red panda conservation.

471 people voted from 20 different states, Canada and the United Kingdom.

The campaign raised over $13,000.
