New Pandas for Tokyo

Posted by Jeroen Jacobs | Date: 2010 02 12 | In: Ueno Zoo

Ueno Zoo is expected to receive a breeding pair of giant pandas from China early next year. Tokyo’s Governor Shintaro Ishihara announced on February 12, 2010 that the Chinese side has agreed to lease a pair of pandas for $950 000 a year. Tokyo has been without a panda since the death of Ling Ling, on April 30, 2008.
