We’re thrilled to announce our iconic Giant Panda duo will be making their big screen debut next week – on an IMAX screen no less!
Viewers at Melbourne Museum’s IMAX cinema will get a glimpse of Wang Wang and Fu Ni as part of an opening short video for the IMAX original film PANDAS 3D.
Our black-and-white pair will grace the huge screen with their gorgeous antics as part of a promotional video for Zoos SA and our world-first Southern Hemisphere Giant Panda breeding program.
Wang Wang and Fu Ni’s debut will then be followed by the screening of PANDAS 3D, a movie documenting the journey of cub Qian Qian as she learns the ways of panda adulthood before her release into the wild.
Every day, our pandas are tasked with the very important job of being ambassadors for their cousins in the wild.
As home to the Southern Hemisphere’s only Giant Pandas, Adelaide Zoo has the perfect opportunity to provide insight into the future of Giant Panda conservation within the Australasian region.
With every breeding season that passes we gain more and more knowledge into the unique reproductive biology of this fascinating species.
We’re very proud of our superstars and the important message they are sharing!
As a conservation charity, we’re working tirelessly to make sure these lovable animals will be around for generations to come.
PANDAS 3D will screen at Melbourne Museum on 6 June at 7:45pm.
