As you enjoy watching Yang Guang, please consider a donation to feed him whilst we're closed

A message from keeper, Alison:

"Yang Guang is a very special boy with a sweet nature. He loves eating bamboo and gets through 20 kilograms every day - and I never forget his midnight snack to get him through the night!"

“Many people are enjoying watching Yang Guang on our cameras during lockdown and we’ve offered our schools programme ‘Beyond the Panda’ for families to use at home on lessons, usually only available for schools."

Did you know that, as a charity, we receive no government funding for our animals? Now the zoo is closed, it is a very challenging time.

We are so grateful to everyone who has already donated to fund our food bill. Can you help now with a gift to feed and care for your favourite animals in May?

£55 could buy lunch for Yang Guang. Please watch your gift in action as he is fed in front of you every day.

Yes I want to help now

"Best of luck to Alison, the Giant Panda keeper!  I hope they like the additional snacks - I have enjoyed watching Yang Guang munching through heaps of bamboo very much" - RZSS Donor, April 2020

Thank you from Alison, our panda keeper
