Red Panda Webcam (finished for 2015)
Thank you for watching the Red Panda family!
Red Panda ‘Jai-Li’ had twins on 27th June 2015. The cubs have left their den now, and are living out in the main enclosure. We hope that there may be more cubs in 2016 when we will get the cameras online again.
News: 27th June 2015
Jai-Li gave birth to two cubs, one at around 5:50am and one at 7:50am.
After name suggestions from visitors, Facebook fans and Twitter followers, the keepers choose ‘Rusty’ and ‘Scarlet’. They are now outside most of the time so the camera has been moved outside. Hopefully you may get to see them in the trees on the webcam.

Jai-Li (which means beautiful) was born on 28th June 2011 and came to Paradise Park in 2012 to join Lang-Za, who was born at Marwell Zoo on 16th June 2006 and arrived at the Park back in December 2008.
Recent data suggests that Red Panda population numbers may be as low as 2,500, due to continuous loss of habitat and wildlife trading. The existing population is expected to experience additional declines of 10% every 10 years. People can help by joining the www.redpandanetwork.org, spreading the word, adopt a Red Panda or sponsoring a Forest Guardian. These guardians not only conduct awareness-building workshops on red pandas with local villages and schools but also serve as a basis for continuing The Red Panda Network’s baseline research and monitoring and the establishment of community-based protected areas.
Did you know that the Red Panda is also called a ‘Firefox’, and it’s where the internet browser got their unique name in support of the Red Panda.
