Just eight days after the departure of its beloved giant panda Bao Bao, the Smithsonian’s National Zoo is embarking on producing new cubs.
Bao Bao, the US-born panda cub returned to China, has quickly adapted to her new home in Sichuan province, despite a flight of nearly 17 hours from the United States.
For Dennis Kelly, director of the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, seeing giant panda Bao Bao leaving for China on Tuesday was “bittersweet.”
The National Zoo was extremely crowded on a sunny Sunday with people coming to say goodbye to giant panda Bao Bao.
Bao Bao, the giant panda at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, did not disappoint at her Chinese dumpling farewell party on a frigid Thursday morning.
The zoo announced in October that Bao Bao would return to China sometime this winter. Now it has announced farewell celebration events for fans from Feb 16-20.
