Red Panda Day

Saturday, September 16, 2017, 5:00 PM - 11:00 PM


Celebrate "the original panda" - and the one-and-only Idgie the red panda - on a day packed of interactive activities highlighting this endangered species, and learn more about the challenges Idgie's counterparts face in the wild. The Eastern Himalayan Broadleaf and Conifer (EHBC) forest is threatened by road-building, illegal timber harvest, overgrazing, and slash-and-burn agriculture. The World Wildlife Fund has listed it as a "Global 200" threatened ecoregion, and Conservation International has identified the EHBC forest as part of the "Himalayan Hotspot" due to its unique biodiversity. The red panda (Ailurus fulgens fulgens) is the landscape species for the EHBC ecoregion, and is nearly extinct in the western part of its range. Across all countries, fewer than 10,000 (by some estimates, fewer than 2,500) red pandas remain in the wild.

Cost: $22.99 in advance/$25 at gate, $21.99 students, $18.99/$21.99 seniors, $16.99/$17.99 ages 3-11, free under 3, military and members
