Today is Panda Day!

The giant panda, native to China, is famous worldwide, but how much do you know about this adorable creature? We put together some fun facts for you.

 

 

While not widely-recognised globally, 16 March is marked by devotees as Panda Day – a good enough excuse for us to celebrate these adorable creatures!
After all – the panda has been our organisation’s symbol since 1961, when WWF was founded.
