September 10, 2020 - Virtual International Red Panda Day
The NEW Zoo & Adventure Park, along with the Green Bay Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK), invite you to join us for a VIRTUAL International Red Panda Day celebration this Saturday, September 19th (10a.m.- 2:00 p.m.). Red pandas are classified as an endangered species, with potentially as few as 2,500 remaining in the wild, so these animals need our help now more than ever. This virtual event will celebrate red pandas and help raise funds to support their conservation.
To lead up to our Virtual International Red Panda Day event, we’ll post videos of enrichment and training demos with the Zoo’s red pandas throughout this week on Green Bay AAZK’s Facebook page (@GreenBayAAZK). We will also have an assortment of fantastic, hand-made crafts available to purchase on Green Bay AAZK’s Etsy page: etsy.com/shop/GreenBayAAZK
All proceeds from Green Bay AAZK’s Etsy page sales during the month of September will be donated to the Red Panda Network. The Red Panda Network is a non-profit organization committed to the conservation of wild red pandas and their habitat. Through community-based research, outreach, and education programs, Red Panda Network has reached significant conservation milestones in Nepal. Learn more about them at redpandanetwork.org.
