Red pandas are a critically endangered species, with possibly only 2500 of them left in the wild today. In honor of International Red Panda Day, which occurs annually in September, we are working with our Green Bay Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK) to raise money to support conservation efforts. The Red Panda Network is committed to the conservation of wild red pandas and their habitat through the education and empowerment of local communities.
To support these efforts, custom-designed and fun socks (below), featuring one of the NEW Zoo’s very own red pandas, are for sale now through Monday, September 25th. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Panda Network. Socks can be purchased at bakdrop.com. Please consider making a purchase to help us protect red pandas!
