Zoo Atlanta is one of only three zoos in the U.S. housing giant pandas. Native to cool, mountainous regions of China, giant pandas are well-adapted for cooler weather. Twins Ya Lun and Xi Lun, who turned 3 on September 3, and their parents, Lun Lun and Yang Yang, both 22, may often be found in outdoor habitats at the Zoo’s Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation Giant Panda Conservation Center in the fall and winter months.
The giant pandas are ambassadors for Zoo Atlanta’s most significant long-term investment in wildlife conservation. Fewer than 1,900 giant pandas are estimated to remain in the wild in China’s Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu provinces. Of these, more than 1,200 live inside nature reserves, and eight of these reserves have been supported by Zoo Atlanta. Although the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) downgraded the species’ status from “endangered” to “vulnerable” in 2016, giant pandas remain heavily reliant on conservation programs. Their threats include habitat fragmentation and habitat loss as a result of deforestation and other human activities. Zoo Atlanta has contributed well over $10 million in support of wild giant pandas in China and has provided support for reforestation projects, conservation education programs, giant panda nurseries and field research programs and supplies.
The Black-and-White Friday discount is valid only on Friday, November 29, 2019, and is not valid online; the discount may not be combined with any other offer or promotion.
Share the Zoo with even more family and friends with Zoo Atlanta's Cyber Weekend Gift Membership offer, valid from Black Friday through Cyber Monday. From Friday, November 29 through Monday, December 2, receive two bonus single-day general admission tickets with the purchase of a Zoo Atlanta Gift Membership Gift Card. Tickets are valid through June 30, 2020.
Zoo Atlanta will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.
