The unmistakable red panda is found in the mountains of Nepal, Myanmar and central China. They have a taste like bamboo, like their larger relatives, but also eat fruit and roots. Red pandas are an at-risk species, listed as Endangered, as their native forests are destroyed for agriculture and logging. Conservation breeding programmes in zoos are co-ordinated world-wide.
 

How do I adopt a Red panda?

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase from the options below and then make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because some of our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. If your adopted species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your adoption to another species.
