Red Panda Day 21st September

Join the Animal Encounters team at Woburn Safari Park for a special day of fun and games on the 21st September as they celebrate International Red Panda Day.

Buy standard admission tickets and come along to the park on the 21st September to join the Animal Encounters team, and red pandas Mali and Sanka, for International Red Panda Day. 

Why we are helping red pandas

The IUCN has listed Red panda as ‘Endangered’ with less than 10,000 individuals in the wild, although this figure may be much smaller.

Unfortunately, they suffer from habitat loss and illegal killing and as a result individuals live in very small ‘subpopulations’, meaning the future could result in poor gene pools out in the wild from inbreeding.

10th International Red Panda Day 2019

Red Panda Network (RPN) is the world’s first nonprofit organisation dedicated to protecting red pandas and their habitat. The Red Panda Network works with local communities in Nepal on community based research, education, and sustainable development projects to ensure the survival of wild red pandas.

Meet the keepers at their stall in the Foot Safari to take part in some fabulous, fun activities including a ring toss, a red panda mask making station, and guess how many bamboo leaves in a jar competition, as well as much more. 

Plus, have a go at the tombola at the park on the 21st September and you could win some amazing prizes
