Chengdu Panda Encounters Through Judy's Eyes

Author: Judy Perpose

The pandas in Chengdu are a sight that can't be missed! My hometown of Toronto has experienced the joys that these animals can bring to a community firsthand when China sent 2 pandas to the Toronto Zoo. The many people we met while on the Trade Mission urged us to go and see the pandas in Chengdu and I'm extremely glad that we had the opportunity to do so with our CYA (Chinese Youth Ambassadors) friends.


I was happy to learn that moving forward, the Chinese government hopes to supply bamboo to our two friendly pandas in Canada (that have now moved to Calgary!). It goes to show the love and care that the Chengdu community has for these beautiful creatures, no matter where in the world they may be!
