International Red Panda Day

September 17 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

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 International Red Panda Day on Saturday, September 17th, from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. This event is FREE with regular Zoo admission. According to the Red Panda Network, as few as 2,500 red pandas remain in the wild. That means this endangered species needs our help now, more than ever.

During this year’s International Red Panda Day event, visitors can learn more about red pandas at an educational booth near the NEW Zoo’s red pandas. Our schedule of events is as follows:

  • 10:00 a.m. Training Demo
  • 11:00 a.m. Keeper Chat
  • 12:00 p.m. Enrichment Demo
  • 2:15 p.m. Feeding Demo.

All activities will take place at the red panda habitat.

In addition to the event’s educational activities, there will also be animal-themed crafts for sale – all handmade by members of the Green Bay Chapter of AAZK! The crafts, of course, include some special red panda themed items, along with paintings made by one of the Zoo’s very own red pandas! All proceeds raised at the sales table will benefit the Red Panda Network.

If you’d like to help support red pandas even more, join us on September 20th at Noodles & Company on Lineville Road in Suamico. From 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Noodles will donate 25% of sales to our cause when you mention Green Bay AAZK in person or use the code GIVING25 in the app or with online orders.
