Zoo Atlanta is raising the money to fund the giant panda research project through an intense fundraising effort. SAVE A SPECIES: THE CAMPAIGN FOR GIANT PANDAS is the most ambitious single fundraising project Zoo Atlanta has ever undertaken. The campaign, which includes habitat construction, panda husbandry, and both local and China-based research programs, has received tremendous support from individuals, foundations, and corporations in Georgia.

United Parcel Service (UPS) airlifted the pandas from Beijing to Zoo Atlanta on Friday, November 5, 1999. Click on the UPS logo to go to the UPS Panda Express site. The pandas made their trip in a specially equipped and custom-painted Boeing 767 UPS cargo plane. In addition to the transport, the UPS Foundation, the charitable arm of the company, will donate $625,000 to the zoo over the next five years to help build and maintain the giant panda habitat.
