Unwanted Bamboo as a Feast for Mulan and Maja

Red Pandas Mulan and Maja at Drusillas Park (near Alfriston, East Sussex) enjoyed a special donation. The company Environet UK had removed invasive bamboo from the garden of a nearby property.

As Red Pandas are gourmets and only eat fresh plants, several kilograms of the fresh bamboo were transported to the zoo within just one hour.

For Drusillas Park, the donation is a great help. Although the zoo has its own bamboo plantation, it still has difficulty satisfying the Red Pandas’ voracious appetites.
