We’re celebrating International Red Panda Day this week with red panda cub, Rowan! He just turned 3 months old, and he’s starting to explore his outdoor exhibit!
The red panda is listed as endangered because its population has declined by 50% over the past 20 years. This decline is primarily due to deforestation, which eliminates red pandas’ nesting sites and sources of food. Through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), the Binghamton Zoo participates in several Species Survival Plans (SSP), ensuring the long-term health and survival of captive species, including the red panda. Red pandas can be found in the Himalayan Mountains in parts of Buma, Nepal, India, and China.
