Of course, we are also very happy to be on the nomination list for the Giant Panda Best Friends Award 2019!
The Zoo Berlin – a zoo of superlatives! It is not only the oldest and most visited zoo in Germany, but also the most species-rich in the world.
Since summer 2017, its inhabitants include the two Giant Pandas Meng Meng and Jiao Qing. The only Giant Pandas in Germany have moved into the newly built Panda Garden at the Zoo Berlin – one of the most beautiful and modern facilities for bamboo bears worldwide. At the opening even the German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel and Chinese President Xi Jinping were present.
Since then, Meng Meng and Jiao Qing have been delighted every day with adventurous climbing opportunities, lovely streams, air-conditioned indoor facilities, romantic sleeping places and of course lots of bamboo. The arrival of the two Giant Pandas has caused a veritable “panda fever” throughout Germany.
