Drayton Manor Park Zoo in Staffordshire welcomes two new arrivals. Female Red Pandas Tika and Pema – both 11 months old – moved from Longleat Safari Park to their new home in May.
“The population of the Red Panda is declining in the Eastern Himalayas, which makes up for 50% of their habitat, so conservation is increasingly important. They join a number of rare and endangered animals at Drayton Manor Zoo including Obie the baby Tapir, and Kit and Leo, twin Cotton-Top Tamarins”, says Zoo Manager Chris Mitchell.
The zoo cooperates with the Red Panda Network.
