It’s time! Their “suitcases” are packed and ready, and with just a few hours to go before they leave for France, Huan Huan and Yuan Zi are quietly feeding on fresh bamboo shoots, in their quarantine area at the Chengdu Panda Base. Having grown up together, they know each other very well and get along great!
On site, Delphine and Rodolphe Delord are carrying out the final preparations before the long journey that will transport the pandas to the ZooParc de Beauval. Mr. Zhang Hao, an expert panda keeper, and Mrs. Liu Li, a veterinarian, are also preparing to escort these plantigrade animals to Beauval, where they will spend the next several months caring for the pandas.
Being in close contact with Huan Huan and Yuan Zi for the past few days has filled the Beauval management with joy. The whole Chengdu Panda Base team is ready for the departure of the pandas and the Delord family wishes to thank Dr. Zhang Zhihe, the Director of the Base, and his assistant Mrs. Wei Ling, who warmly welcomed them and assisted them with the preparations for the big day.
