The Toronto Zoo’s four giant pandas are leaving the city and are now heading off to the Calgary Zoo after boosting the number of visitors to the zoo.
Toronto Zoo hopes losing pandas won’t hurt attendance. Da Mao and Er Shun were the two giant pandas who have been on loan from China for the last five years, and two-year-old twin cubs, Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue, were a staple of the zoo, and now zoo staff are preparing them for their big move to Calgary.
The Calgary Zoo, which will open its panda exhibit May 7, is expecting a 25 per cent surge in visitors in the first year. – CINEWS
