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.
