For the love of pandas!

giant pandaIt’s an exciting time for the people of Adelaide. November 28th 2009 saw the arrival of two giant pandas to Adelaide. Wang Wang and Funi came from Bifengxia panda centre in Sichuan, China to live at Adelaide Zoo in South Australia. They travelled 900km from their home in China to be with us in Adelaide.

They are living in a purpose built enclosure designed to meet their needs. Fourteen hectares of land have been set aside in Bolivar specifically for the growing of bamboo. Funi and Wang Wang will eat around 40kg of bamboo a day.

They will be in Adelaide for ten years.

This website is a celebration of having the pandas stay here in Adelaide. It is also an opportunity to learn more about pandas and Adelaide. Get the latest news at my blog.
