Red Panda Photo Caption Competition
This month Billabong Zoo (Port Macquarie) is highlighting the plight of the Red Pandas – sadly on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as Endangered. “Red Panda is listed as Endangered because its population has plausibly declined by 50% over the last three generations (estimated at 18 years) and this decline is projected to continue, and probably intensify, in the next three generations.” taken from the IUCN website http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/summary/714/0
Please enter our photo caption competition – the winner will be able to have a close encounter with a Red Panda here at Billabong Zoo http://billabongzoo.com.au/attractions/close-up-encounters/ Winners announced early March – 4 runner-up captions goes to our end of year competition. The photo is of one of Billabong Zoo’s resident Red Pandas taken by one of our regular photographers – Dean Michell. We look forward to your captions.
More information about the Endangered Red Pandas and links to Conservation organisations will be posted in the coming days and weeks.
