Did you know:
Zoo New England is committed to the conservation of these animals and is an active participant in the Red Panda Species Survival Plan (SSP) – a cooperative, inter-zoo program coordinated nationally through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. SSPs are designed to maintain genetically diverse and demographically stable captive populations of species.

In the wild, this endangered species faces threats including illegal hunting and habitat destruction due to increased logging and farming. The red panda is known for its soft, dense red fur that covers even the soles of its feet and keeps it warm in the forests of its Himalayan habitat, as well as its ring-tail and mask-like face.

These activities are included with general Zoo admission. More information at zoonewengland.org/redpandaday
