International Red Panda Day
Saturday, September 21, 2013
Red pandas were introduced to the Western world in 1821 — more than 40 years before giant pandas were scientifically described in 1869. Celebrate the ORIGINAL panda!
Zoo Atlanta is joining the Red Panda Network and other Zoos to celebrate red pandas. The “original” panda gets its turn in the spotlight! Highlights will include a special Zoo’s Clues Mystery; Red Panda Keeper Talk; and Animal Tales Storybook Readings of “Lost Little Firefox: An Interactive Tale of a Small Red Panda” by Leeza Hernandez. Activities run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
FREE with general admission; check your Zoo map for activity times and locations.
