Panda Updates – Wednesday, July 17
We’ve officially headed into the heat and humidity of middle summer in Atlanta. This means that animal care teams all over the Zoo are busy ensuring that the animals are staying comfy and cool in addition to our regular responsibilities. But in PandaLand, that means something different for the Panda Care Team. As we move further into summer, we are starting to see a change in activity patterns for the giant pandas. They’re eating a little less and sleeping a little more. This offers a nice change of pace for our team and allows us to spend a little more time on other aspects of our jobs like building enrichment, professional development, and planning future habitat modifications.
