International Red Panda Day

Saturday, September 15, 2018
11am to 4pm
Red Panda Exhibit
Free with admission

The Giant pandas may have left for Calgary but did you know that the zoo is still home to Red pandas and has been since the zoo opened more than 40 years ago?

Red pandas are, in fact, the original panda, discovered almost 50 years before the Giant panda.

Join us at the Red Panda Exhibit in the Eurasia Wilds to learn all about this endangered species, native to the temperate forests of the Himalayas, and find out how you can help save them with games and educational activities throughout the day.  Don’t miss a special enrichment feeding at 12pm and 3:00pm plus, bid on fun prizes in a panda-themed silent auction.  All proceeds support the Red Panda Network, a non-profit organization committed to the conservation of wild red pandas and their habitat.
