Pandas Are Coming Back To The National Zoo

The Smithsonian National Zoo has announced that a new pair of panda bears will be coming to the Zoo at the end of 2024.

According to the National Zoo, after a six month hiatus , the China Wildlife Conservation Association has agreed to loan the two pandas to the Zoo for ten years in exchange for an annual fee of $1 million. The new pair consists of a 2-year-old female named Qing Bao and another two-year-old male named Bao Li. Most notable is Bao Li who apparently is the son of a former National Zoo resident named Bao Bao.

The pair are expected in DC later this year.
