Tiny Little Pandas Grow Up

Two small pandas are growing up in the nest boxes at Diergaarde Blijdorp (Rotterdam Zoo). The pair were born behind the scenes last month. In the meantime, mother Kwina occasionally moves her young to another nest box. Three nest boxes have been incorporated into the habitat’s artificial rock and tree. The sire is Miyuko, he came to Blijdorp from Pairi Daiza at the beginning of this year. The young usually stay in their nest for about three months. After that, they appear more and more… Diergaarde Blijdorp coordinates the Population Management program and works with conservation organization Red Panda Network (RPN) in Nepal to protect and research the little panda in its habitat.

Red Panda Romp!

The Zoo Boise red panda cubs, born June 21, 2021, were extremely active in the snow last week. Check out this video of the pair playing in the snow while it was still dark outside.

Zoo Boise has turned the act of visiting the zoo into a conservation action. Since 2007, visits to Zoo Boise have generated more than $3 million towards the conservation of animals in the wild, redefining why we have a zoo. Zoo Boise is accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums, a national organization that supports excellence in animal care, conservation, education, and science.

Baby Red Pandas Get Names

The two red pandas recently born at The Netherlands’ Amersfoort Zoo have been given names: “The female is called 'Suki' and the male is called 'Hikaru'. “Suki” means “love”, “Hikaru” means “brilliant”, says animal caretaker Saskia van Soest. “The animals were born in July, but sexing, and therefore also naming, takes place when the young are a bit older. The pandas are doing very well and they are exploring their enclosure to the fullest.”


Red pandas are native to the Himalayas in Southeast Asia.

“We are very happy with the young pandas, because this species is not doing well in the wild. With their fluffy fur and dark brown eyes, they have a great appeal to people and are very popular as pets. Many people therefore bring a panda into their home,” explains Saskia. Also, due to poaching and felling, only 10,000 red pandas are left in the wild. The Amersfoort Zoo Wildlife Fund therefore supports the Red Panda Network, which trains the local population to become forest rangers. These 'forest police' keep control of the panda's habitat.
