Red Panda Webcam
Welcome to the Red Panda den 2016.
Exciting news! Jai-Li had a cub at about 6.30pm on July 10th. She is taking great care with it and early on Monday 11th it looks and sounds like a healthy little cub.
With thanks to panda fan and dedicated webcam-watcher Suzanne Adams for her message on Facebook to alert us to the birth.
Here is a current photo of one of last years Red Panda cubs. Looking amazing!

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 its name in support of the Red Panda.
