Beardsley Zoo’s International Red Panda Day (Bridgeport)
September 15, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Come see Rochan and Meri, the adorable Red Pandas at Beardsley Zoo on September 15th. Take a peek at the new habitat being built for them. The Zoo’s Education staff will be giving talks on these adorable members of the Zoo family. This year, more than 100,000 visitors are expected at accredited zoos on International Red Panda Day to become Red Panda Rangers.
What is a Red Panda Ranger? A Red Panda Ranger is a special title given to children who help spread the word that Red Pandas are experiencing a loss of nesting trees and bamboo, leading to a decline in population. With fewer than 10,000 Red Pandas in the wild, we need to help save these little firefoxes!
