The Rangers at Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park, which is located on Pershore Road in Edgbaston, are celebrating the arrival of a two baby red pandas.

Born in the last week of July, the babies are currently in one of the shelter boxes within the panda enclosure with their mother, Amba and should be making an appearance in the next few weeks.

Our baby red pandas are growing by the day. One of our babies is at the front but keep watching until you see the other one next to mom at the back. Not long and they’ll out to play for you all to see.

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.
