Bamboo Backers Panda Cub Vet Checks
Visit the giant panda nursery to see one of the cubs get its weekly veterinary exam! Be there as the cub is weighed, measured, and given its clean bill of health by Zoo veterinarians. You never know; you might be here to observe a new developmental milestone!
This opportunity is extremely limited, as is access to the giant panda nursery.
Program runs on Tuesdays beginning November 1, 2016, from 10:30 a.m. to approximately 11:25 a.m., and includes an interpretive experience with a Zoo education guide; entrance into the giant panda building; an opportunity to observe a giant panda cub vet check; a chance to speak with a Zoo Curator; a Q&A with veterinarians; and a take-home souvenir.
$2250 for Zoo Atlanta Members; $2,500 for non-Members. Maximum 4 participants per program.
What does this program support?
This experience is made possible by a donation to Zoo Atlanta, supporting not only the Zoo’s world-famous giant panda program and our operations within the Zoo, but also allowing us to free up more resources to support field conservation programs, which are at the heart of our mission.
Our giant panda program supports much more than just the pandas you see here. We also support the pandas you don’t see – populations living in the wild, where our help is needed the most. Of the fewer than 1,900 giant pandas remaining the wild, more than 1,200 of these inhabit nature reserves – eight of which are supported directly by Zoo Atlanta.
