Born in the last week of July, the baby is currently in one of the shelter boxes within the panda enclosure with its mother, Amba and should be making an appearance in the next 3-4 weeks.

In the wild, red pandas live in Nepal, Bhutan and China – but the species is under threat.  They have recently been re-classified as ‘endangered’ by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park (formerly known as Birmingham Nature Centre) is home to a wide range of animals, including charismatic and exciting species like Lemurs, Sloths, Ocelots, Yellow Breasted Capuchin Monkeys and Otters. It is also home to a large collection of endangered reptiles and plays an important role in international breeding programmes.

Opening hours for the Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park are 10AM – 5PM, last admission 4PM. Entry fees: Adults £5.50, Concessions £4.50, Children 3 – 15 years £3 and Children under 3 go free.
