The newest baby at the Virginia Zoo officially has a name: Sofie.

Sofie stands for Saving Orangutans from Extinction, an acronym created by her keepers, according to the Virginia Zoo.

Since Dara gave birth to her on June 22, many have wanted to know the baby’s name and gender.

You can now get a glimpse of mother and baby daily in their exhibit until 11 a.m.
