International Red Panda Day

Date: 15 Sep 2018

Red panda

This event is celebrated across the globe and is designed to raise awareness for this beautiful and charismatic species.

Join us as we celebrate International red panda day on Saturday 15 September 2018.     

We are home to two red pandas called Chris and Vixen. Call by to find out more about our red pandas at the feeding time and keeper talks.

Our mission is to be a major force in conserving and safeguarding habitats and wildlife to make a significant contribution to their survival in the future. Our red pandas are part of a collaborative breeding programme to ensure a viable safety net population in captivity.

One of our roles is to create conservation links between captive populations of endangered species being managed ex situ (outside of its natural habitat) and wild populations being managed in situ. We support a number of in situ conservation campaigns including the Red Panda Network.

International red panda day is the initiative of the Red Panda Network.  This organisation is committed to the conservation of wild red pandas and their habitat through the education and empowerment of local communities.
